Caribbean Revolutions and Revolutionary Theory

Caribbean Revolutions and Revolutionary Theory
Price
46.95 BBD

This volume re-examines the meaning of revolution as a useful concept in politics. It traces the history of the concept from its ancient beginnings, but especially in connection with the idea of progress since the French Revolution. More recent statements are examined as a prelude to arriving at a less deterministic, entrenched definition than has often been the case, but which retains the idea of revolution as a potential window and facilitator of change.

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.

Case Studies on Educational Administration 5ed.

Case Studies on Eucational Administration 5ed.
Price
272.70 BBD

This book immerses prospective administrators in the realities of practice. Problem solving and decision-making skills are addressed through the use of open-ended case studies. Effective practice in school administration requires both leadership and management. In today's reform-minded, information-based society, practitioners must be able to frame problems correctly and then make effective decisions to ameliorate them. As leaders, district and school-level administrators are expected to focus on what should be done to improve schools; as managers; they are expected to focus on how to do things successfully. The cases in this book are designed to make students think about common problems of practice by encouraging them to bridge theory and practice. More precisely, the cases are intended to hone four essential practitioner skills.

Cases on Issues & Problems

Cases on Issues & Problems

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.

Clear Word & Third Sight

Clear Word & Third Sight
Price
54.70 BBD

Clear Word and Third Sight examines the strands of a collective African Diasporic consciousness in the works of several black Caribbean writers. John shows how a shared consciousness, or third sight, is rooted in both pre-and postcolonial cultural practices and disseminated through a rich oral tradition. This consciousness has served diasporic communities by creating an alternate philosophical worldsense linking those of African descent across space and time. Contesting popular discourses about what constitutes culture and maintaining that neglected strains in Negritude discourse provide a crucial philosophical perspective on the connections between folk practices, cultural memory and collective consciousness, John examines the diasporic principles in the work of the Negritude writers Leopold Damas, Aime Cesaire and Leopold Senghor. She traces the manifestations and reworkings of their ideas in Afro-Caribbean writing from the Eastern and French Caribbean, as well as the Caribbean diaspora in the United States. The authors she discusses include Jamaica Kincaid, Earl Lovelace, Simone Schwarz-Bart, Audre Lorde, Paule Marshall and Edouard Glissant, among others. John argues that by incorporating what she calls folk groundings--such as poems, folktales, proverbs and songs--into their work. Afro-Caribbean writers invoke a psychospiritual consciousness which combines old and new strategics for addressing the ongoing postcolonial struggle.
