Luis Rosario Albert studies the conflicts surrounding the public telecommunications modernization plan in Puerto Rico between 1942 and 1948. The author, a filmmaker and academic researcher on communications, places developments in Puerto Rico, where the vast multinational corporation ITT originated, in a complex field of international power relations that embraced the Caribbean, the US and Europe.
