Maxwell Advisory Board member publishes book on Puerto Rico
A new book by Ángel Collado-Schwarz, a long-time Maxwell School Advisory Board member and SU Trustee, has been published by Syracuse University Press.
In “Decolonization Models for America’s Last Colony: Puerto Rico,” Collado-Schwarz examines the more than century-old relationship between Puerto Rico and the United States. He presents decolonization strategies for the island, which suffers from a stagnant economy, unemployment and limited political autonomy. Using interviews and newspaper columns, Collado-Schwarz examines six countries similar in size to Puerto Rico—Estonia, Ireland, Israel, New Zealand, Singapore and Slovenia—that have managed to successfully obtain sovereignty. The author applies lessons from those six countries in considering the future of Puerto Rico.
Collado-Schwarz is the founder and chairman of the Fundación Voz del Centro, a cultural nongovernmental organization. He is also the producer and host of the radio program La Voz del Centro, and has authored four other books: “Voces de la cultura 1,” “Voces de la cultura 2,” “Voces de la cultura 3” and “Soberanías exitosas.”
