Overview

This book represents an update of a well-received volume published in 1989, Caribbean in World Affairs. Given the broad changes that have occurred in the world since the fall of the Berlin Wall, and taking into account requests for a second edition from Caribbean scholars and policymakers in recent years, the author has written this new edition with the same aim as the original: to provide a comprehensive and theoretically-grounded account of diplomatic developments in these microstates. The author provides a lasting analysis of small state behavior, noting the recent renewal of interest in small states in both the global north and south. The new material includes attention to the changed global setting, updated theoretical developments in foreign policy, and the inclusion of Haiti and Suriname, newer members of Caricom.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

“This timely collection of essays by a range of literary and cultural historians deftly explores the multivalent and sometimes conflictive uses of violence in early modern England—a period for which violence was a natural but by no means a transparent form of social expression. Early modern violence spoke volumes but the particular story any one act of violence might tell depended on its various agents, participants, and audience living the historical moment. One ringing refrain of this volume, however, is that violence more often than not told the story of ‘the tenuous nature of patriarchal authority in early modern England.’”-- Patricia Fumerton, Professor and Director, English Broadside Ballad Archive, Department of English, University of California–Santa Barbara
