Caribbean Political Thought: The Colonial State to Caribbean Internationalism
Edited by Aaron Kamugisha
Caribbean Political Thought: The Colonial State to Caribbean 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 Bartolomé de las Casas and Ginés 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

Caribbean Cultural Thought: From Plantation to Diaspora
Edited by Yanique Hume and Aaron Kamugisha
Caribbean Cultural Thought: From Plantation to Diaspora presents a critical appraisal of the range of issues and themes that have been pivotal in the study of Caribbean societies. Written from the perspective of primarily Caribbean authors and renowned scholars of the region, it excavates classic texts in Caribbean Cultural Thought and places them in dialogue with contemporary interrogations and explorations of regional cultural politics and debates concerning identity and social change; colonialism; diaspora; aesthetics; religion and spirituality; gender and sexuality and nationalisms. The result is a reader that presents a distinctive Caribbean voice that emphasizes the long history of critical writings on culture and its intersection with political work in the Caribbean intellectual tradition from within the academy and beyond.

Foundations of Caribbean Politics
by Robert Buddan

Probably the two main concepts around which studies of the historical Caribbean have been organized are nationalism and the plantation. The former stresses an ongoing struggle for emergence on the part of a people for self-government, identity and empowerment. The latter emphasises the plantation as the crucible out of which Caribbean societies have been conditioned and the legacy of slavery, sugar and colonialism. This study accepts these two principal organising concepts but utilises them against the main concerns that are current: the problems of democratisation, the effectiveness of civil society, the constraints and opportunities of small size, the appropriate role of the state, and the search by Caribbean people for a better life or, at least, another life abroad. Together, we might regard these as issues of reconstruction that face the modern Caribbean. By building on the traditional themes then, one might see the organising concepts for this work as the plantation, nationalism and (a consciousness towards) reconstruction.
