Los Macheteros: The Wells Fargo Robbery and the Violent Struggle for Puerto Rican Independence

Some brief overview of book

This is an older book, but better than some more recent ones even though (obviously) its history only goes up through the 1980s. Although not really a history of Los Macheteros (as others have noted), it uses that movement and their involvement in a famous robbery to explore the history and meanings of the relationships between the US and Puerto Rico and the struggles in PR for independence. Researching and writing this book was a journey of discovery for Nuyorican sociologist Fernandez, and can serve the same purpose for readers interested in learning more about PR.

Worth hunting up a copy.
