The CUNY Dominican Studies Institute and Routledge present a new series devoted to the publication of classic Dominican books, made available in English for the very first time. Classic Knowledge in Dominican Studies publishes books written by senior, highly recognized Dominican authors who have unquestionably marked the history of knowledge in the Dominican Republic, as well as in Latin America and the Caribbean. Each book is introduced and contextualized by a historian currently working in the field, to bring the historiography of the subject up to date and introduce the text. Now, students who only read in English will have the opportunity to become familiar with these classic books. In promoting the translation and publication of well-known Dominican authors and their classic texts, Routledge and the CUNY DSI aim to effectively contribute to the dissemination of these must-read works within the wider community of scholars on Latin America and the Caribbean.
