Notes:
406 p, In the first systematic study of the politics and culture of the Afro-Caribbean migration to the U.S., historian Wintson James explains the enigma of political radicalism among Caribbean migrants. This important work shows that streams of Afro-Caribbean migration constituted a vibrant link between African Americans and the continent from which their ancestors were wrenched centuries ago. 256 pp;
