Pressestimmen"[T]he central value of Carr's text remains precisely in what is implied in his subtitle: that by 'reading African American and West Indian experiences' together, we are listening to a dialogue among a new generation of Caribbean and African-descended intellectuals, who form part of a larger formation of New World black intellectuals."--Michelle Stephens, Modern Fiction Studies "[A] conceptually imaginative and excellent new work."--Jane Mattox, Mississippi Quarterly "[R]eading these texts against one another within the context of a linear historical analysis of political and cultural struggles among African-Americans and West Indians does provide a clear sense of the simultaneous processes of change and continuity within nationalist narratives. Moreover, [Carr's] suggestion that these texts most obviously reveal the limitations of struggling for state representation is provocative."--Deborah A. Thomas, Identities "Carr's wide range of references, attention to historical and literary detail and palpable political commitment raises standards for the field as a whole. One of his greatest strengths is the sustained engagement with non-canonical writer and texts."--Yogita Goyal, Wasafiri Reviewed in Choice. Listed in CHE and boundary 2.
