Lieferbar innert 2 Wochen
BeschreibungIn the interest of locating race and ethnicity as sociological and political categories that are inimical to contemporary conceptions of the nation state, editor Anton L. Allahar explores the geopolitics of the Caribbean through a comparative focus. The result is a study that is unique in scope and also in its level of scholarly reflection. This book is the first of its kind. It is essential reading for anyone interested in advancing their analysis of political, economic, social, and cultural thought in the Caribbean and other former colonial modern nations.

PressestimmenThis volume dutifully gathers a variety of interesting cases to illustrate processes of identity formation, conflict and social change in a useful and well-documented resource for anyone looking for a solid introduction to the complex articulators of ethnicity, nationalism and class in the Caribbean at a time when many of the region's communities have been impacted, in varying ways, by the developing context of global political economy. All of this is to be appreciated. -- Jeff Shantz Studies In Ethnicity and Nationalism
