Production of a new publication titled "Puerto Rico in the World 2010," organized around seven major themes, for use by the general public and in classrooms. Material for the publication will be incorporated into the Puerto Rico Online Encyclopedia and will be available in both Spanish and English.

This project is based in the assumption that the democratic system of government and the life of individual liberty depends on an informed and educated public.
