About the Book New Perspectives: Dominican Republic

New Perspectives: Dominican Republic is a masterly compiled 300 page bilingual English-Spanish publication comprised of nearly 400 aerial images. The publication is divided into 9 chapters – Reflections of Light, Coasts, Heights, Plains, History, City, People, Tourism and Work – that contain images and text describing various aspects of the country’s history, culture, ecology and contemporary life.

The creation and publication of the book form part of GFDD and FUNGLODE’s overall mission to promote the image of the Dominican Republic worldwide, disseminate information concerning the country and strengthen appreciation and respect for its cultural and ecological heritage.

GFDD and FUNGLODE hope that the book will serve as a point of reference for the national population and the numerous Dominicans that reside outside as the country, as well as for international visitors, the nation’s commercial sector, students, art and photography aficionados and all those interested in developing a better understanding of the Dominican Republic.

The book can be acquired from FUNGLODE Headquarters in Santo Domingo and GFDD’s offices in New York and Washington, DC.
