  • On the Move

    The Caribbean Since 1989

    By Alejandra Bronfman     January 2007

    The Caribbean stands out in the popular imagination as a “place without history,” a place which has somehow eluded modernity. In On the Move, Alejandra Bronfman argues the opposite is true; the caribbean is, and has always been, deeply engaged with the wider world. From drugs and tourism to international political struggles, these islands form an integral part of world history and of the present, and are in a constant state of economic and social flux in the face of global transformations.
