      Puerto Rico and the United States Book Summary: From to , the United States kept Puerto Rico in limbo, offering it neither a course toward independence nor much hope for prompt statehood. The Jones Act of gave Puerto Ricans U.S. citizenship, but the status of the island didn't change.   On the one hand, the United States continues to govern Puerto Rico as an unincorporated territory—and that is a foreign possession in a domestic or constitutional sense. Simultaneously, federal citizenship laws treat Puerto Ricans as members of the U.S. political community. In part, these territorial laws create a two-storied home.

Edna Acosta-Belen and Carlos E. Santiago change this status quo, presenting a nuanced portrait of both the community today and the trajectory of its development.

Mexicans would lose their land in the southwest to the Anglos. The Treaty of Guadeloupe would create a harsh environment for the Mexicans where they were not equal citizens.
