New York.– The third edition of the Anthology of the Thoughts of Juan Bosch, by Justo Pedro Castellanos Khouri, launched at the Dominican Cultural Center in New York City, will help spread Dominican thought beyond the national borders.

According to Ramona Hernández, Sociology Professor and Director of the Institute of Dominican Studies of City University New York, a work like this "will help us disseminate the positive aspects of our people and perhaps this will make people more receptive to us when we travel and lived in foreign countries."

"This collection of Dominican intellectual thought should be made available to our next generation which comprises more than four out of ten Dominicans living in the United States today," Hernandez added.

The book will be attractive to university students and especially those who preserve and advocate for their own identity, different from the society in which they live.

It won't make a difference, if we as Dominicans don't take out the time to learn about our culture. We're very quick at saying we're Dominicans! but some don't have a damn idea of their roots, culture and most important how to preserve it!!! I'm not hating on my people but some are Dumb AS Hell!!!

Juan Bosch was left-wing intellectual elite. Very few Dominicans can fathom the gist of his thinking. To do so, you must read.

If it hadn't been for Operation Power Pack the D.R. would be a Western European style developed democracy by now, but unfortunately the anti-communism paranoia of the 1960s in the U.S. prevented all that. :(
