Caribbean sociology: introductory readings
A significant body of Caribbean sociological literature is either scattered, difficult to access, or out of print. This publication addresses this problem by bringing the literature together in a single volume. This comprehensive collection is divided into twelve sections, beginning with a general introduction that reviews Caribbean sociological development. The subsequent sections explore the themes of Caribbean social theory, social stratification, ethnicity, culture and identities, women and gender, education, and modernization, as well as emerging topics of discussion, namely domestic violence, child and sexual abuse, labor market conditions, population and demographic change and indigenous African-derived religions.Christine Barrow is a lecturer in sociology at the University of the West Indies in Barbados. Rhoda Reddock, University of the West Indies, is head of the Center for Gender and Development Studies in St. Augustine, Trinidad.
