Re: Sam Erman

The New Republic published a review of Sam Erman's book entitled "Almost Citizens: Puerto Rico, the U.S. Constitution, and Empire. According to the reviewer, "The book is deeply researched and densely footnoted, but Erman’s writing is also lively and lucid, and he has an eye for catchy stories and compelling characters." The review goes on to suggest that aside from its compelling narrative, the book "has recovered a crucial history of the struggle over democracy, rights, race, and gender in America, a set of conflicts we have not left behind."
