Juan Pablo Duarte: The Humanist / Juan Pablo Duarte: El humanista is a pioneering book. It is the first bilingual (Spanish and English) book containing the writings of Juan Pablo Duarte, the founding father of the Dominican Republic. With this selection we seek to expose part of Duarte's thought as he expressed it at key moments in his life. Hence, the decision to prepare a book that was completely bilingual. The Spanish writings included in this book are exact copies of the manuscripts preserved by Rosa Duarte, one of his sisters, described by historians as the closest to him.
