Historia comparada de las Antillas (A Comparative History of the Antilles) is the last book in the collection on the history of the Antilles directed by Dr. Consuelo Naranjo Orovio of the History Institute of the Higher Council of Scientific Research in Madrid, Spain. Thus concludes the five-volume project dedicated to the history of Cuba, the Dominican Republic, Puerto Rico, the non-Hispanic Antilles, and comparative history (2009–2014).
