9781526113733: Frontiers of the Caribbean (Theory for a Global Age)

This book argues that the Caribbean frontier, usually assumed to have been eclipsed after colonial conquest, remains a powerful but unrecognized element of Caribbean island culture. Combining analytical and creative genres of writing, it explores historical and contemporary patterns of frontier change through a case study of the little-known Eastern Caribbean multi-island state of St. Vincent and the Grenadines. Modern frontier traits are located in the wandering woodcutter, the squatter on government land and the mountainside ganja grower. But the frontier is also identified as part of global production that has shaped island tourism, the financial sector and patterns of migration.

About the Author:


Philip Nanton is Lecturer at the University of the West Indies in Barbados, and a freelance writer, poet and writer/producer of radio documentaries, including several on Caribbean culture for the BBC

Review:

'Philip Nanton provides a compelling sociological analysis of a frontier society, revealing the value and promise of "the frontier" as a conceptual tool with which to explore the impact of globalisation. The book is beautifully written, offering an extraordinarily vivid picture of St Vincent's history and its physical, social and cultural topography. It is also highly original, both methodologically and conceptually, with an unconventional structure that seems to mirror the author's arguments about frontiers. This can be unsettling but it pushes the reader to reflect on other boundaries, such as that between art and science, poetry and sociology.' Julia O'Connell Davidson, Professor in Social Research, University of Bristol -- .
