    schema:description ""The Legal Construction of Identity: The Judicial and Social Legacy of American Colonialism in Puerto Rico" investigates how the relationship between the US and Puerto Rico has been created and recreated over the past 100 yrs. More specifically, the author engages in the exploration of how law has contributed to the construction of a particular social reality, a reality embodied by the colonial relationship between the United States and Puerto Rico. The book discusses the legal constructs and governing norms involved in the struggle for identity, specifically a Puerto Rican identity, one which claims rights to US citizenship and participation while also asserting a separate cultural identity. The law as a crucial arbiter of self-determination and self-perception is also analyzed in relation to Puerto Ricans striving to form a distinct national identity. The audience for this book includes social scientists and legal scholars but also to anyone interested in the symbiotic relationship between law and society.
