CARICOM: Policy Options for International Engagement

CARICOM: Policy Options for International Engagement
Price
109.85 BBD

"In CARICOM: Policy Options for International Engagement, the contributors bring a wealth of experience and knowledge in putting forward the critical questions policymakers must consider and answer, in charting the course and laying the framework for this coordinated structure and foreign policy plan. Divided into four sections, the volume firstly presents the perspectives that corroborate the need for collective action. The second section focuses on the emerging powers and the need for South to South Cooperation while the third section discusses the external trade negotiations and the impact of the loss of EU preferences and subsidies; the EPA and trade negotiations in the WTO; and the new CARICOM-US trade relations. In the fourth and final section, the volume is rounded out by an examination of the kind of cooperation that is needed first at the regional level to sustain economic development. The need for harmonisation of fisheries policies and the prevention of maritime degradation; the preservation of the environment and the need to reverse the effects of climate change; the need for a cohesive regional security policy and a viable air transportation industry as well as the legal framework to implement multilateral treaties are all examined as imperative to CARICOM's development of a coordinated regional foreign policy plan.

Cascade: A Novel

Cascade: A Novel
Price
38.45 BBD

"Do not go gentle into that good night." I write it in blood on the walls of my mind.

A guesthouse in Jamaica's mountains offers the ideal retreat for elderly friends weary of changes that have transformed their city, and a plan takes shape to retire together in the country house overlooking the sea. Terrorized by gunmen in their Kingston home, however, Ellie and Dan relocate to Trinidad instead, splintering off from the group to join their daughter's family, yet keeping in close contact with Dan's sister, whose stepson will run the home. Against the development of Cascade, under its dangerously inept manager, unfolds a tale of violent intrusion and dislocation, of cold-blooded exploitation and murderous resentment.

Yet it is also a tale of love and courage persisting through physical and mental deterioration as a brilliant and compassionate woman struggles with a disease that can wreck the relationships she treasures most. Damaged by Alzheimer's and irrepressible by nature, Ellie proves thoroughly disruptive even within her own supportive circle. Beyond it, relocated to Cascade, she becomes a witness haunted by fragments of excruciating memory. As time overtakes the main characters, tricks of the mind intersect with actual events and with the increasingly menacing forces that close in on the fragile Ellie.

Cascade recounts the gathering trauma of psychological dismemberment and poignant efforts to connect against a background of social turmoil. The novel engages with the challenges of Alzheimer's disease in a Caribbean context, where displacement, memory, identity loss and resistance remain crucial and enduring preoccupations.

Cascade is an accomplished work of fiction by a writer of obvious talent. It examines the subject of growing old with sensitive honesty, through the stories of three main characters. Ellie succumbs to Alzheimer's disease, her husband Dan suffers slow physical debilitation even as his mental faculties remain sharp, and Dan's sister's Rosemarie, though still sound in body and mind, finds her freedom impaired by the selfishness and cruelty of younger relatives.

Cases on Issues & Problems

Cases on Issues & Problems
Price
85.40 BBD

Increased public awareness of the importance of education to national development has brought the work of the school and other educational institutions into sharp focus. The job of the educational manager/administrator in creating the climate for effectiveness and efficiency in the management of educational institutions must be seen as one of the most critical elements in the equation, if not the most. The factors that define the role of educational managers/administrators must be constantly studied. Despite the complexities involved, an understanding of the internal and external factors impinging on each institution will go a far way in dealing with issues and problems when they arise.

This resource is designed as a practical approach to integrating theory and practice. It is a tool to be used in diagnosing and treating situations that have the potential to derail the objective of providing society with an educational product that will contribute much to societal and individual development. School managers/administrators will find a number of situations depicted in the cases similar to their own experiences or dissimilar to the extent that no two situations are the same. What is relevant here is that the dynamic milieu in which educational management takes place throws up continuous challenges that must be faced and handled with professional expertise. Such expertise is born out of a knowledge base that is rich in practical experiences, theory and research.

Central Africa in the Caribbean

Central Africa in the Caribbean
Price
98.45 BBD

Central Africa in the Caribbean is the product of more than three decades of research. Maureen Warner-Lewis's pioneering study analyses some of the main lineaments of the Central African cultural legacy in the Caribbean, with fascinating transatlantic comparative data. She identifies Central African cultural forms in areas settled by the Koongo, Mbundu and Ovimbundu (the two present-day Congos and Angola) and illuminates Caribbean thought and customs through comparison with those cultures.

The work is based on extensive primary and secondary sources, oral interviews, folk-tales, and songs. Additionally, through her knowledge of the functional languages of the region - Spanish, English, French, and their creoles - Warner-Lewis accesses a wide range of pre-existing research on the Central African cultural impact on the Americas; this gives her work a unique pan-Caribbean breadth.

Warner-Lewis's multidisciplinary approach highlights the debate concerning the origin and transformation of cultural forms in the Caribbean against a larger background of African culture and economy, and Atlantic World colonialism and slavery. This book is invaluable for scholars and general readers interested in African diaspora studies, African and Caribbean history, linguistics, music, religion, and cultural anthropology.

Champion of the Gayelle

Champion of the Gayelle
Price
17.85 BBD

The gayelle is an arena, an area of challenge and contest. In the West Indies the gayelle is best known as the stage for stick fighting, or the pit for illegal cock fighting. But it can also be used as an arena theatre space.

Champions of the Gayelle is the first of the Gayelle collections of plays in the Macmillan Caribbean Writers' Series. These collections feature popular Caribbean plays with outstanding track records in regional Arts and Drama Festivals, together with less widely known and newer plays that have the potential to become tried and tested favourites.

This first collection includes: Alwin Bully's much-loved Dominican comedy, Good Morning, Miss Millie; the perennially successful Duelling Voices by Zeno Constance of Trinidad and the record-breaking drama The Rapist by Jamaica's Pat Cumper.

The three plays in this first Gayelle collection are all community-oriented champions of the larger gayelle of West Indian theatre. In spite of their successful track record, only Good Morning, Miss Millie has been previously published. Macmillan is delighted that Champions of the Gayelle not only revives Alwin Bully's evergreen comedy, it places on record one of Zeno Constance's finest plays and introduces the work of the talented Pat Cumper making these memorable West Indian dramas available to a wider audience.

Chattel House Blues

Chattel House Blues
Price
56.65 BBD

Chattel House Blues is an account of the struggles of Black Barbadians in the 20th century to secure a place within an island their labour had built as a monument to British colonialism. Having fought against the local oligarchy in the streets of Bridgetown in 1937, black workers and their middle class allies, finally secured universal adult suffrage in 1950 and finally independence in 1966 ending the Great House Rule that had begun three hundred years earlier.

But political democracy and national independence did not bring to the new majority community the full feeling of citizenship promised by the founders of the nation. Politically enfranchised but economically disenfranchised and culturally alienated the struggle was rekindled to confront the past and bring justice and equality to the new dispensation; a cultural movement that seeks to centre and promote the African sensibility of the majority community took root and found expression in discourses within the arts, academia, and grass-roots community organisations.

The remaking of colonial Barbados as a postmodern nation state has its political roots buried deep within the past. In Chattel House Blues, Hilary Beckles sets out to rewrite modern Barbadian history by centring the evolution of the nation in centuries of grassroots struggle. Democracy in Barbados, he argues, as a social, political and cultural reality, has its origins principally within working class demands for freedom, justice and equality and not as a bestowal upon the masses by elites at moments of imperial and colonial enlightenment. In the second volume of his trilogy, Great House Rules: Landless Emancipation and Workers' Protest in Barbados 1838-1938, Prof. Beckles convincingly shows that for the first one hundred years after emancipation, an unbroken chain of resistance, protest and agitation for democratic governance, resulted in a decisive breach in the walls of the structures of white supremacy culminating in the Clement Payne Movement and the Riots of 1937. Black workers and their middle class allies secured Universal Adult Suffrage in 1950 and finally politically independence in 1966, ending the 'Great House Rule' that had begun three hundred years earlier. This process he further argues, reached maturity in 1994 when Owen Arthur, a young man from the chattel house in the plantation tenantry became prime minister. Independence and nationhood, though critical markers in the journey towards social justice and equity d not mean an end to the struggle. The politically enfranchised workers have since risen to an appreciation of their economic rights and the issue of popular economic democracy is now seen as the next step I civil rights development that Barbadians must confront. Chattel House Blues connects current political thinking with the historical process. In producing this work of historical literature that emphasises a people-centred culture of change and transformation, Prof. Beckles' thesis is challenging if not controversial and is bound to result in widespread debate among Barbadians at home and in the diaspora.
