The first full length inter-disciplinary book to be published on this subject in English, it examines the relationship between politics and society in all three of France's overseas departments in the Caribbean. It has contributions on other salient features of French West Indian society and culture: class and ethnicity, the position of women, relations with Europe, with other Caribbean countries and with the French West Indian community in France. In addition there are also chapters on French West Indian literature and the principal theories of identity in the region, Negritude, Antillanite and Creolite. Among the contributors are French West Indian, British and Jamaican scholars.

From the Back Cover:

In 1946, after more than three hundred years as French colonies, Martinique, Guadaloupe, and French Guiana were transformed into 'overseas departments' of France, equal and identical in theory to any other French department. This book assess the effects of almost half a century of political assimilation into France and asks to what extent the high standard of living enjoyed by French West Indians today has been offset by losses on the political, cultural, and psychological levels.

About the Author:

Of Martinician origin, he is director of the research laboratory Territoires et Pouvoir Local.
