    The book entitled “Quisqueya, A Nation in the World”, Juan Pablo Duarte is depicted as naming “Quisqueya” the country which denomination is derived from the name of the island as “Island of Santo Domingo” (henceforth: Dominican Republic). Since the island is shared by other country (Haiti) that has the island named “Haiti”, the USA Agency to Standard Names decided to use the name “Hispaniola” for the island since 1936. The credit for Duarte naming his country Quisqueya is not yet given for a series of errors and omissions in the history of the Island of Santo Domingo. The book is to come out before the end of 2011.
