  • La colonia soberana: Deportes olímpicos, identidad nacional y política internacional en Puerto Rico.

    Al examinar cómo el movimiento olímpico se desarrolló en Puerto Rico, Antonio Sotomayor ilumina el profundo rol que los deportes juegan en el proceso político y cultural de una identidad desarrollada dentro de una tradición autonomista en vez de una tradicional independencia política. La colonia soberana demuestra las sorprendentes negociaciones que dieron vida a una soberanía olímpica en una nación colonial, un caso único en Latinoamérica, y usa el deporte olímpico como una vitrina para observar asuntos más amplios como construcción de nacionalidad e identidad, hegemonía, pos-colonialismo y diplomacia internacional.
