More Than Seawater and Sand

This book is an introduction to the Anglophone Caribbean region. The title responds to the general view of non-Caribbean people that the region is solely a tourist destination. Hence the objective of the book—to introduce the region as a space that is inhabited by peoples and cultures which are as dynamic as others. It focuses on the Anglophone Caribbean, but references are made to the wider region. The book is not a comprehensive introduction as it uses the lens of four areas of Caribbean society– politics, calypso and reggae music, and cricket. However, given the central roles, they have played in the formation of Caribbean identity, the reader gets more than a restricted introduction to the society.

Bob Marley Lyrics of Resistance

This book is the extension of a course on Bob Marley, which I teach at Arizona State University. It brings together some of the lectures and thoughts I have expressed both in and out of the classroom on the life and music of Marley. The book explores his lyrics as political text and reads them as products of the political realities of the periods of decolonization and early independence in Jamaica and the wider Anglophone Caribbean. Further, it locates Marley and his lyrics in the Caribbean’s Black radical tradition, particularly its resistance and protest dimensions.

Anglophone Caribbean Politics

This book is an introductory political portrait of the English-speaking Caribbean or the Anglophone Caribbean. It provides information and insights into the region’s political evolution from the 1930s to the present. Topics covered include Decolonization and Independence, Black Power, Regional Integration, Ethnicity and Politics, Resistance and Revolution and Political Leadership. The book is written particularly with students in mind, especially those with little or no knowledge of the region. It is by no means an exhaustive account of the region’s politics, but it offers the reader enough to make sense of this small but complex collection of small island and mainland states.
