Faces of the Caribbean seeks to investigate the story behind the stock images of this unique region of sea and islands sandwiched between the New World continents. Acclaimed Caribbean expert John Gilmore gives an overview of the region and the complex historical forces that have shaped its extraordinary diversity and creativity. He examines the legacy of slavery and exploitation, reggae as cultural phenomenon and growth industry, the impact of Derek Walcott, sugar and cricket, volcanoes and the environment, Creole literature, the Anglican faith, and much more in this engaging volume.
Faces of the Caribbean follows the acclaimed format of Faces of Latin America and offers a very readable overview both of current issues and historical developments in the region.
