The African-Caribbean Worldview and the Making of the Caribbean Society, edited by Horace Levy

Publication Date: 
December 2010

The African-Caribbean Worldview and the Making of Caribbean Society (2009) is Horace Levy’s ambitious atempt to give space, play and agency to an often subjugated African diaspora subject. Pulling together contributions from scholars from a variety of fields, the work atempts to document and problematize from multiple perspectives the non-material drivers of African oppression and resistance in the Caribbean. Compiled in tribute to Jamaican-born social anthropologist, the late Barry Chevannes, and emerging from a 2006 conference in his honour, the volume comprises 13 chapters which touch on “many of the critical facets of the Caribbean worldview and its making as it emerged from the dark days of slavery” (p. 8).
