Vieques: A Photographically Illustrated Guide to the Island, Its History and Its Culture
Vieques una Guía Fotográficamente Ilustrada de la Isla, Su Historia y Su Cultura (Spanish Edition)
Prospective buyers may wonder about these two (three) books, so I thought I'd compare them for convenience.
Singer's Vieques: A Photographically Illustrated Guide to the Island, Its History and Its Culture (2004) is well illustrated in color, with text in English*, and depicts the different parts of Vieques with history including the protests leading up to the US Navy's withdrawal form the island. It's primary audience would likely be tourists who have visited and want something to remember the island by; it's not a bad book, but it doesn't get into things in very much depth or with much local perspective. The color photos are nice, but emphasize beaches and historic sites. *There is also a Spanish-language edition, which I haven't seen but apparently is a translation of the English text.
Fabián Maldonado's Vieques en mi memoria: Testimonios de vida (2003) is well illustrated in B&W, with text in Spanish, and presents interviews with 15 individuals who reflect on their and their families' histories on and with the island.Read more ›
the photos are brillant and the author really tries to cover some of the rich social/political history.
my only wish is that there was more, more and more inside... kinda like the never-ending book of vieques. for real, i never would have bought a book for myself about a place i visited, but this was a must have and a perfect gift to give too!!
