Synopsis: Jamaican Proverbs, People and Places reintroduces a core part of Jamaica s cultural heritage which is slowly being eroded due to cultural imperialism, especially from exposure to foreign television, merchandise and music. There is hardly any Jamaican with deep ties to the country who will not agree that for generations their fore-parents have inundated them with proverbs to describe situations or challenges that they faced. Many of these sayings are enveloped in humour to lighten the mood yet the message could not be more profoundly serious. They provide tools necessary for upward social mobility, discipline, knowledge and wisdom. As time progresses and Jamaicans become increasingly immersed in technology the use of oral traditions to impart moral and educational messages has diminished.

About the Author: : Andrea Campbell, MBA, MA is a Jamaican-born management consultant, performance coach, trainer and linguist who currently runs her own training consultancy in the UK. A qualified interpreter and translator, Andrea speaks four languages and lives in London. Jamaican Proverbs, People and Places - Wit, Wisdom and Achievements is a traveler s guide that captures the rich history and the colourful and exciting culture of Jamaica also known as "The Rock" by its residence, of the Caribbean Islands.
