Active from the late 1960s until the mid-1990s, the U.S. branch of the
Puerto Rican Socialist Party (PSP) worked simultaneously to build support
for Puerto Rican independence and to engage in radical social change within
the United States. ‘Revolution Around the Corner’ chronicles this unique
social movement, describing various mass campaigns and the inner workings
of the organization. The editors and contributors—all former members,
leaders, and supporters of the PSP—offer a range of views and
interpretations of their experience. Combining historical accounts,
personal stories, interviews, and retrospective analysis, Revolution Around
the Corner examines specific actions such as the National Day of Solidarity
(El Acto Nacional), the Bicentennial without Colonies, the Save Hostos
struggle, and the Vieques campaign. Testimonies recount the pros and cons
of membership diversity, as well as issues of loyalty and compañerismo. In
addition, essays describe the PSP’s participation in coalitions and
alliances with Left and progressive movements. The book concludes with the
editors’ reflections on the PSP’s achievements, mistakes, and contributions.
