Ceded to the United States under the terms of the Treaty of Paris after the Spanish-American War of 1898, Puerto Rico has since remained a colonial territory. Despite this subordinated colonial experience, however, Puerto Ricans managed to secure national Olympic representation in the 1930s and in so doing nurtured powerful ideas of nationalism. By examining how the Olympic movement developed in Puerto Rico, Antonio Sotomayor illuminates the profound role sports play in the political and cultural processes of an identity that evolved within a political tradition of autonomy rather than traditional political independence. Significantly, it was precisely in the Olympic arena that Puerto Ricans found ways to participate and show their national pride, often by using familiar colonial strictures—and the United States’ claim to democratic values—to their advantage. Drawing on extensive archival research, both on the island and in the United States, Sotomayor uncovers a story of a people struggling to escape the colonial periphery through sport and nationhood yet balancing the benefits and restraints of that same colonial status. The Sovereign Colony describes the surprising negotiations that gave rise to Olympic sovereignty in a colonial nation, a unique case in Latin America, and uses Olympic sports as a window to view the broader issues of nation building and identity, hegemony, postcolonialism, international diplomacy, and Latin American–U.S. relations.

This book examines apian imagery—bees, drones, honey, and the hive—in the seventeenth- and eighteenth-century literary and oral traditions. In England and the New World colonies during a critical period of expansion, the metaphor of this communal society faced unprecedented challenges even as it came to emblematize the process of colonization itself. The beehive connected the labor of those marginalized by race, class, gender, or species to larger considerations of sovereignty. This study examines the works of William Shakespeare; Francis Daniel Pastorius; Hopi, Wyandotte, and Pocasset cultures; John Milton; Hester Pulter; and Bernard Mandeville. Its contribution lies in its exploration of the simultaneously recuperative and destructive narratives that place the bee at the nexus of the human, the animal, and the environment. The book argues that bees play a central representational and physical role in shaping conflicts over hierarchies of the early transatlantic world.

Todd, Alpheus. Parliamentary Government in the British Colonies. Edited by His Son. London: Longmans, Green, and Co., 1894. xx, 929 pp. Reprinted 2006 by The Lawbook Exchange, Ltd. ISBN-13: 978-1-58477-617-8. ISBN-10: 1-58477-617-X. Cloth. $150.* Reprint of the Second edition. By 1894 Great Britain possessed the largest formal empire that ever existed, one that ranged across a bewildering variety of lands and cultures. A remarkable work of synthesis and analysis, Todd's treatise is an excellent guide to its political and legal administration at the time when the empire stood at its zenith. In the course of nineteen lucid chapters it describes how Parliamentary government functions in the Colonies, the ways imperial control manages the appointment and control of governors, local legislation, internal administration, military, naval, and ecclesiastical matters, foreign relations, imperial legislation, judicial appeals, grant of honours and the use of royal prerogatives, particularly mercy. Other chapters examine administrative and legislative jurisdiction over subordinate provinces of a central colonial government, the constitutions and powers of colonial parliaments and the double position and functions of colonial governors or lieutenant-governors.
