This book provides a much-needed index to works of Puerto Rican collective biography. Included are books of collective biography, reference works, collections of essays, histories, and some anthologies, all published prior to 1986. A special attempt has been made to include as many English-language sources as possible. This is the only index to cite the exact page location of the biographies, a feature which should prove particularly useful since many of the sources indexed are not in alphabetical order or have some errors in the form of the entry.

Editorial Reviews

?A typical entry in this unique work shows a biographee's last and first name; vital dates; and a citation with volume, page, and indication of illustrations to almost 150 works of collective biography published in 1985 or before. Interlibrary loan is facilitated by inclusion of page and volume information. Excluded from the sources are journal articles and books containing fewer than three biographies. The considerable populations of Puerto Ricans in the US, the significant contributions made by many Puerto Ricans, and the many English-language sources included in this work make it essential for every library.?-Choice
