Editorial Reviews


"A pointed, relentless chronicle of a despicable part of past American foreign policy." --Kirkus Reviews

"A patient, calibrated, fully-researched study of the mendacious, hypocritical way the United States treats its Caribbean colony, castrating its leadership, bombarding its villages, experimenting biologically with its population. Puerto Rico is, in a word, el calabozo. Denis knows the truth first-hand and refuses to sugarcoat it." --Ilan Stavans, author of Spanglish: The Making of a New American Language

"Sometime in the not-too distant future, we will resolve the relationship between the United States and Puerto Rico. To understand where we are going, we must know our past--both good and bad. War Against All Puerto Ricans fills an important gap in that historical understanding. It is a book that every student of the US-Puerto Rico relationship should read." --Congressman José Serrano

"Nelson Denis's fascinating new book is a timely reminder of that other island in the Caribbean that the United States took possession of in 1898: Puerto Rico. War Against All Puerto Ricans is a remarkable history of a forgotten national liberation movement and Washington's brutal pacification campaign." --Greg Grandin, professor of history at New York University and author of The Empire of Necessity

"Prepare to be outraged. Nelson Denis lifts a huge and heavy rock from under which crawls one of the more unfathomable and generally unknown dirty secrets about the US government--that it unleashed its military might against its own citizens in a misguided effort to quell a perceived revolt by Puerto Ricans. Meticulously eye-opening must-read." --Robert Dominguez, New York Daily News

From the Author

The U.S. bombed two towns in Puerto Rico on November 1, 1950.

It was the only time in history that the U.S. intentionally bombed its own citizens. They also arrested 3,000 Puerto Ricans, tortured hundreds of them, and maintained secret FBI files on over 100,000 more.

Why did the U.S. do this?  Why have we never heard of it?  Who was responsible?

With photos, eyewitness accounts, personal interviews, congressional testimony, and recently de-classified FBI files, War Against All Puerto Ricans explains it all.
