516 p., Explores the theme of power to expose the disruptions and dangers lurking in Caribbean discourses on gender and love when these are approached from interrogating the currencies of power continuously circulating in their operations.

The authors simultaneously critique and create knowledge about the lives of women and men within the Caribbean and its diaspora.
