It is a crucial reading for those interested in the fields of Caribbean Studies and international migration. -- Professor Ramon Grosfoguel, University of California at Berkeley ...it offers scholars in the social sciences and the humanities rigorous ethnographies and historical reconstructions that highlight those exceptional phenomena that escape the routinizing models of Caribbean studies. -- Jason Frydman, Dept of English and Comparative Literature, Columbia University H-Net: Humanities and Social Science Reviews Online In Caribbean Transnationalism, Ruben Gowricharn brings together a diverse group of scholars and their concerns about crucial aspects and areas of the Caribbean at home and abroad. The collection is a valuable contribution to a growing body of literature on the diverse beginnings of a people and their subsequent dispersal across northern and western Europe and North America, while also making the often neglected links there are to the South American continent. This volume is a must for all who are concerned about the continuing construction of the Caribbean region and the Caribbean's presence in the wider North Atlantic world. -- Harry Goulbourne, Author of Caribbean Transnational Experience
