The Caribbean is known more as a tropical paradise than as an area composed of diverse ethnic and political groups, the majority of whom live on the edge of poverty. This set of conceptual and empirical papers focuses on the diversity of ethnic groups in Caribbean families. The essays examine ethnic origins, social structures, family structures, and intellectual, social and clinical problems and their treatment. The issues noted in migration patterns are presented in some detail and there is a description and assessment of different family organizations and childrearing patterns. In documenting Caribbean culture, this volume aims to offer a source of information for broadening the knowledge base of social scientists interested in sociocultural family functioning.

Caribbean Irish Connections: Interdisciplinary Perspectives

There has been an Irish presence within the Caribbean since at least the 1620s and yet the historical and cultural dimensions of this encounter remain relatively underresearched and are often conceived of in reductive terms by crude markers such as redlegs or poor whites. While there are some striking reminders of this history througout the region, this collection explores how the complications and contradictions of Irish-Caribbean relations are much richer and deeper than previously recognized.

Caribbean Irish Connections makes an important contribution to Irish studies by challenging the dominance of a US diasporic history and a disciplinary focus on cultural continuity and ancestry. Likewise, within Caribbean studies, the Irish presence troubles the orthodox historical models for understanding race and the plantation, race and class structures, as well as questions of ethnic and religious minorities. The contributors emphasize the importance of understanding the transatlantic nexus between Ireland and the Caribbean in terms of the shared historical experiences of dislocation, diaspora and colonization, as well as of direct encounter.

This collection pays tribute to the extraordinarily rich tradition of cultural expression that informs both cultures and their imagination of each other.

Caribbean Political Thought: The Colonial State toCaribbean Internationalisms uncovers, collects and reflects on the wealth of political thought produced in the Caribbean region. It traces the political thought of the Caribbean from the debate between Bartolome de Las Casas and Gines de Sepulveda on the categorization of Native people in the New World, through the Haitian Revolution, to the immediate aftermath of the Second World War. The ideas of revolutionaries and intellectuals are counterposed with manifestos, constitutional excerpts and speeches to give a view of the range of political options, questions, and immense choices that have faced the region's people over the last 500 years. Includes Contributions from: Laurent Dubois and John D. Garrius Trevor Munroe Jean-Jacques Dessalines Aviva Chomsky, Barry Carr and Pamela Maria Smorkaloff Amy Jacques Garvey Dantes Bellegarde Jacques Roumain W.

In Caribbean Tourism, Jean Holder tells the story of how, when, why and whence tourism, now the driver of most Caribbean economies, was introduced into the region and why its journey has been a turbulent one. Tourism was one of the means of diversifying out of a Caribbean sugar industry that was beset with difficulties after emancipation in the 1830s. This situation was made even more difficult by the fact that tourism is in itself a complex and invasive phenomenon which does not require a history of colonialism and racism to provoke strong reactions in a society.

Holder takes case studies from those islands where Caribbean tourism first blossomed - Barbados, Bermuda, the Bahamas, Jamaica and Cuba - to demonstrate the post-emancipation complexities and the measures taken to address them. He details the history of various regional entities and the roles they played in the development of the Caribbean tourism industry and goes on to analyse Caribbean tourism performance in the second decade of the twenty-first century against the background of the state of the world economy, the forecast for global tourism andair transportation performance and the prospects of current major and potential markets of the emerging economies of the BRIC (Brazil, Russia, India and China) and other countries.

In outlining a sustainable strategic plan for the industry, which pays special attention to the current needs in the areas of product development and the exploration of new niche markets, especially sport, culture and heritage, Holder expresses continuing confidence in the tourism sector. In spite of current challenges, the tourist industry is resilient and the Caribbean's best hope for continued development, provided the region works together and plays to its strengths.

"Worldwide, tourism has become one of the most pervasive industries affecting towns and cities and remoter communities. No less so for the Small Island Developing States of the Caribbean, for which tourism has undoubtedly been one of the fastest growing sectors of the economy. But tourism is equally, one of the most fragile industries, susceptible more than any other to competition in the global marketplace and to the effects of natural and man-made disasters. Hurricanes and harassment, crime and violence present daunting challenges. In this post 9/11 era however, the primary challenge for Caribbean States is to develop a sustainable, competitive tourism product. Caribbean Tourism: Visions, Missions and Challenges examines the various factors necessary to face that challenge by discussing: - The role of education and training in the development of the hospitality industry; - The Cruise factor cruise ship contribution to the industry; - Case studies of the performance of the 4 Caribbean Countries; - The performance of the regional airlines; - Lessons from another region; - Community-based tourism development; and - Marketing the destination. Balancing contributions from academics and industry experts, this volume, as part of a three-volume series on Caribbean Tourism, takes a multidisciplinary approach to developing sustainable Caribbean Tourism and provides students in training, researchers, policymakers and industry players with a much needed tool for understanding the way forward for Caribbean Tourism.

There are an estimated 42 million people worldwide living with HIV and AIDS. In the Caribbean, the statistics are alarming. After sub-Saharan Africa, the Caribbean has a higher HIV prevalence than any other area of the world. The need to control the spread of HIV is critical. Though medical advances have been successful in slowing the progress of the disease, there remains no cure for HIV and AIDS. In Challenging HIV and AIDS, the contributors, players at various levels in the education sector across the Caribbean, weigh in on the value of education as a means to halt the spread of HIV and AIDS. The contributions are unique to the Caribbean experience and culture and address the root causes of the spread of the epidemic. Reducing ignorance and the accompanying stigma and discrimination as well as addressing issues of sexuality through Health and Family Life Education in schools are identified as effective programmes in addressing the epidemic.

Changing Societies offers a fresh, timely approach to sociology. Based upon nested theory, the book explains sociology through processes of global and local change--showing how social change occurs in larger global or national structures and influences events that happen in students' immediate personal and social environments. At the same time, Changing Societies emphasizes that social change is a two-way street--that we can influence the world in addition to being affected by it. Racial, ethnic, and gender differences are themes that are woven into every chapter of the book, showing how they affect stratification and inequality, and the workings of particular social institutions and processes. A concluding chapter not only explains agency and social movements, but involves students in activities that help them to think about and plan social action.

It is widely accepted that the children of the Caribbean remain virtually unseen and unheard on the region's agenda for development and research. Where children are visible, it is as passive beneficiaries of traditional services in health, education, welfare and the objects of socialisation in preparation for adulthood, rather than as subjects of rights. In recognition of this and drawing on papers presented at a symposium held by the Caribbean Area Office of the United Nation Children's Fund (UNICEF) and the University of the West Indies (UWI) in Barbados, Children's Rights: Caribbean Realities sets out to identify - from a wide range of perspectives: legal, medical, educational, sociological, anthropological and psychological - the major issues in the realisation of child rights and development in the Caribbean region, as dictated by the United Nation's Convention on the Rights of the Child. Each contribution brings a unique and scholarly perspective to longstanding questions relating to children in the cultural context of the Caribbean and examines these issues on the basis of realities within the family setting and at the community and national levels. This book should inspire and engage those who read it to take urgent action to promote the protection of our children within their individual sphere of influence.
