This collection of essays addresses the workings of ethnicity in the Caribbean, focusing on the significance of ethnicity for social structure and national identity. Temporally, the contributions range from the initial European colonization through to today`s post-colonial Caribbean. Topics discussed include the international repercussions of Haiti`s black revolution, the position of French Caribbean bekes and Barbadian redlegs, race in revolutionary Cuba, Jamaica`s post-independence culture, and the predicament of Dutch Caribbean decolonization. The essays provide a comparative perspective for the study of ethnicity as a crucial factor shaping both intimate relations and the public and international dimension of Caribbean societies.
