"Bibliotecas privadas" is a study on daily life and culture in Santo Domingo during the colonial period, using information gleaned from private archives and libraries in the West Indies. The work particularly examines literature that circulated during the time period, as well as social stratification; through this analysis, author Carlos Esteban Deive aims to gain insight into the nucleus of today's intellectual, political, and social movements in Santo Domingo and the Dominican Republic at large.
