It grew out of a conference held in 2006 in honour of the scholarship of internationally acclaimed Alston Barrington Chevannes, then professor of social anthropology at the University of the West Indies, Jamaica. The geographical span includes Jamaica, Martinique, Trinidad and Tobago, Guyana, indeed the Caribbean as a whole. There is perhaps no other publication with such an aim, range and relevance. The theme of a Caribbean worldview makes this book a pioneering contribution to Caribbean studies. The collection also contains an autobiographical essay by Barry Chevannes.
