Bangarang at Carnival

Price
31.45 BBD

Sex and Scandal climax in the heat of Jamaica's Carnival. Following his success with Tough Girls Don't Dance, Osmund James hits us with a novel of fun-filled sex and romance set against the backdrop of Jamaica's carnival. This captivating book lays bare the morals of a class-filled Jamaican society, where to be a 'browning' is the ambition of many females and where sex and drugs are the currency of choice for whole sections of the society. Surprisingly for such an environment, there still remains hope of true love winning through as Dave, the possessor of a 'well-built golden brown body', woos and wins Jenny, 'the ebony black lady of his'. Fighting the social stigma of being born in Jones Town, Jenny escapes the clutches of Harry and Don T to revel in a love of unending ecstasy, amidst a sea of 'uptown' envy, greed and religious fervour. A cast of characters whose trails cross in a crescendo of carnival bacchanalia.

Bats of Puerto Rico

Price
53.35 BBD

The Caribbean islands are home to some of the most unusual species of bats. A number of them are endemic, living in no other region of the world. On Puerto Rico alone, thirteen different species have been found. Bats are the only naturally occurring mammals there; all others were introduced after settlement of the island first by the Taino Indians and later by the Spanish. Puerto Rico is important for study because of its human history, tropical climate, size, relief and isolation from the mainland. Thus, it is a useful model for understanding how historical, geographic and environmental factors interact in a controlled environment to affect the diversity and complexity of its resident species. This volume is the first complete compilation of the distribution, natural history, taxonomy and ecology of the bats of Puerto Rico. The coauthors, all experienced researchers, introduce the book with a discussion of Puerto Rican ecosystems and an overview of facts and misconceptions about bats in general. The main text then provides detailed descriptions of each of the thirteen Puerto Rican species, as well as illustrations of their faces and skulls. The book concludes with keys to the characters of these bats and a complete glossary. Maps show the distribution of each species on the island. Bats of Puerto Rico is designed to be an easily used source of information for the general public as well as a complete descriptive record for ecologists, mammalogists and wildlife biologists.

Because When God Is Too Busy: Haiti, Me & The World

product image
Price
30.25 BBD

Gina Athena Ulysse's Because When God Is Too Busy: Haïti, me & THE WORLD is a lyrically vivid meditative journey that is unapologetic in its determination to name, embrace and reclaim a revolutionary Blackness that has been historically stigmatized and denied. Crafting experiments with "ethnographic collectibles" of word, performative sounds, and imagery to blur genres and the lines between the geopolitical and the personal, this collection is a testament to postcolonial inheritances. Ulysse's work remixes samples from a range of references as it beckons readers to bear witness to a coming of age as she shifts between time and place and plays with languages to stretch the margins of aesthetics in the academic. These poems, performance texts, and photographs gather fractured memories--longings laced with Vodou chants confronting a past that looms too largely in the present. Because When God Is Too Busy searches for humility while honoring sacred and ancestral imperatives to recognize and salute power beyond Western attachments to reason.
