'This will be a useful text for courses in postcolonial literature, especially those that have an emphasis on travel and inter-cultural encounter. However, it also may have a broader appeal for graduate courses and research concerned with the cultural geography of race, ethnicity and indigeneity.' -Cultural Geographies'The book addresses a compelling range of questions about travel, indigenous identity and postcoloniality... A key contribution of this book is its exploration of complex questions of race and ethnicity.' -Cultural GeographiesRemnants of Conquest offers a detailed account of the modern writers who have visited the Caribs, descendents of the supposedly fierce tribe in the West Indies who fought against European invaders for three centuries. Writers include Jean Rhys and Patrick Leigh Fermor.
