11293 MILLER, DANIEL Modernity : An Ethnographic Approach: Dualism and Mass Consumption in Trinidad. . &&&&& 340 p., extensive bibliogr and index 1997 Oxford : Berg SOFTCOVER: (Orig. paperb., vague rests of water dam., two pages with a few underlinings, one corner of cover creased, else AS NEW) "From cultural studies, sociology, media studies, gender studies and elsewhere there have been a spate of books recently which have attempted to characterize the state of modernity. Many of these have also argued that what is required is an ethnographic work to determine how far these supposed trends actually apply to a given population. This book explicitly accepts this challenge and, in so doing, demonstrates the potential of modern anthropology studies. It starts by summarizing some debates on modernity and then argues that the Caribbean island of Trinidad is particularly apt for such a study given the origins of its population in slavery and indentured labour, both forms of extreme social rupture. The particular focus of this book is on mass consumption and the way goods and imported images such as soap opera have been used to express and develop a number of key contradictions of modernity. It will be of interest to anthropologists looking for a new potential for the discipline, as well as students in other fields who will be interested in the new contribution of anthropology to their debates" [KEY WORDS: Latin America West Indies Caribbean Trinidad Ethnography Anthropology Cultural history ] € 9.50

11108 POPE-HENNESSY, JAMES West Indian summer: a retrospect First Edition. 117 p., illustrated with col. and b/w. lithographs 1943 London : B. T. Batsford HARDCOVER: (Orig. gr. cl. with black lettering, some sunning to covers and spine else a good clean copy in square, tight binding. Wiith dust jacket. VERY GOOD) This is not a travel-book but a book about travellers. it sets out to tell again the published experiences of nine English visitors to the West Indies. Some of these travellers - Raleigh, Trollope, Frude - were famous men; others - Waller, Henry Coleridge, mrs. Carmichael - were little known in their own day and may wel have been utterly forgotten since. Two of them lived in the sixteenth century, one in the seventeenth century, the remainder under George III, George IV, and Queen Victoria. These sketches are chiefly designed to illustrate the reactions of strangers to West Indiean ways of life as well as to the sumptuous scenery of the Caribbean islands during the last three hundred years.The book's aim, in fact, is as limited as its scope.
