Event description

Description

We are delighted to host the launch of the latest book by Professor Colin Clarke, Mexico and The Caribbean Under Castro's Eyes: A Journal of Decolonization, State Formation and Democratization (Palgrave Macmillan, 2019). Professor Clarke's third and final journal based on field research in Mexico and the Caribbean in the 1960s and 1970s, deals with the aftermath of the Castro Revolution in Cuba in 1959, and its impact on the adjacent region where its reverberations could be clearly detected during the period 1960 to 1980. Whereas the first two journals (Jamaica Journals 1961 and 1968 [2016] and Post-Colonial Trinidad [2010] dealt with racial struggles in Jamaica and Trinidad, Mexico and The Caribbean under Castro's Eyes extends the analysis of decolonisation, state formation and democratisation to other Caribbean islands and to the Mexican state.
