Description

This work sets out to challenge the Euro-centric approach to Jamaican history, and aims to show that the Jamaican people are agents in their own history, building and creating institutions and forms of culture appropriate to their own lives. New in paperback form, the book is a cultural history that traces the history of the island from the arrival of African slaves in the 16th century and it considers the extent to which Jamaican culture is derived and extends from its roots in African culture.show more
