Foara Adhikari, Bulletin of Francophone Postcolonial Studies
Caribbean Globalizations offers rich, innovative and cutting edge contributions to ongoing debates about the necessity to reexamine the Caribbean’s complex authenticities, entangled histories, imagined discourses, multifaceted cultures, and postplantation economic and political systems as they relate to the globalized world... it will be valuable to scholars and students in Globalization Studies, Comparative Caribbean Cultural Studies, Francophone Studies, Diaspora and Atlantic Studies, and New World Studies.
