1898 Vol. 6 (Spanish)


1898 Vol. 6: El Paso de la Tormenta. The sixth issue closed the second chapter of this series and provides the context for the final stretch of the story, its third chapter, which will consist of three new final volumes. The transformation of the working class in Puerto Rico as a result of the proletarianization of agriculture is a factor that increases in importance throughout the second chapter. Up until then, the working class nucleus and leadership was a role assumed by artisans, owners of their own tools, self-teaching avid readers who were formed within the European bourgeois tradition. The invasion of the American currency, which redefines the island's class structure, begins in this episode and will gain relevance from now on. It turns the proletariat of different industries like sugar, tobacco, railways and piers in the main working class groups with a much more militant nature, thus creating the organization of a much more radical class than the one that preceded it.

There’s already more Puerto Ricans living outside of Puerto Rico than what we have in the island.
