9789766401832: Midlife and Older Women: Family Life, Work and Health in Jamaica

The definition and evolution of the categories of race and ethnicity have long been topics of debate among historians and scholars of social anthropology. This book examines how the meanings and values of race and ethnicity have been constructed historically and how they are represented symbolically, with particular focus on the Caribbean. Alleyne examines the historical development of these categories in Europe, in Asia and in Africa and then proceeds to an in-depth analysis of the Caribbean, with a focus on Puerto Rico, Martinique and Jamaica as three different modalities of race and ethnicity and three different colonial systems. Through a unique approach grounded in linguistic, ethnographic and historic analysis, Alleyne draws on a wide array of evidence and ultimately opposes the widely held notion that racial antagonism against black people is the consequence of New World slavery in the period following the discovery of the Americas in the late fifteenth century. Of particular interest to the academic audience in the fields of history, linguistics, African American and ethnic studies, sociology, and anthropology, this book also appeals to general readers interested in issues of race, ethnicity and the historical experience of African and African-descended peoples.

Review:

"A significant contribution to the increasingly contentious discussion in the field of race and ethnic theorization about the origins of racism and, in particular, its relationship to people of African descent."
