Globalization, Sovereignty and Citizenship in the Caribbean (Paperback)
About this item
"The contributors to Globalization, Sovereignty and Citizenship in the Caribbean variously address topics and issues of colonial and postcolonial citizenship, identity and belonging; sovereignty and the body politic, and unresolved class and other contradictions of the Haitian Revolution, Commonwealth Caribbean societies, Cuba, and the non-independent territories of Puerto Rico and the Netherlands Antilles, the French Antilles, and the Cayman Islands. There are degrees of emphasis on the contradictory relationship between globalization and national processes, with attention to class, state, nation, gender, racialization, culture, migrant labour and other political concerns. The deepening of the integration of the entire Caribbean into the contradictory processes of globalization suggests that sovereignty, democracy, citizenship, belonging and identity as experienced in the region are best theorized as unfinished (open-ended) projects"--Back cover.
