The series volumes will be of interest primarily to students and scholars in these fields.

Catholicism has long been recognized as one of the major forces shaping the Hispanic Caribbean (Cuba, Puerto Rico, and the Dominican Republic) during the nineteenth century, but the role of Protestantism has not been fully explored. Protestantism and Political Conflict in the Nineteenth-Century Hispanic Caribbean traces the emergence of Protestantism in Cuba and Puerto Rico during a crucial period of national consolidation. Using a comparative framework, Martinez-Fernandez looks at the ways in which Protestantism, though officially "illegal" for most of the century, established itself, competed with Catholicism, and took differing paths in Cuba and Puerto Rico.

One of the book's main goals is to trace the links between religion and politics, particularly with regard to early Protestant activities. Protestants encountered a complex social, economic, and political landscape both in Cuba and in Puerto Rico and soon found that their very presence involved them in a series of struggles in which the Catholic Church was embroiled along with the other main forces of the time -- the peasantry, the agrarian and mercantile bourgeoisie, and the colonial state. While the Catholic Church increasingly identified with the conservative, pro-slavery, and colonialist causes, newly arrived Protestantstended to pursue particular economic activities, such as cigar exportation in Cuba and the sugar industry in Puerto Rico. The author argues that the early Protestant communities reflected the socio-cultural milieus from which they emerged and were profoundly shaped by the economic activities of their congregants.
