This book brings together contributions from a broad spectrum of authors on the most challenging issue for the Caribbean - against the dominating efforts of European colonisers and their descendants, the long-standing struggle of Caribbean people to fashion a culture and society that would give full space to the African heritage of the majority while accommodating their new and evolving circumstances. The book presents contemporary readings that contestation in the areas of Caribbean religion, education, language, music, race, sexual behaviour in a time of the AIDS pandemic, and the economy. It grew out of a conference held in 2006 in honour of the scholarship of internationally acclaimed Professor Alston Barrington Chevannes, professor of social anthropology at the University of the West Indies, Jamaica. This book is unique, therefore, in both the breadth of its focus and range of topics as well as the specific issues considered, most essays being useful case studies in particular fields. The geographical span includes Jamaica, Martinique, Trinidad and Tobago, Guyana, indeed the Caribbean as a whole. There is perhaps no other publication with such an aim, range and relevance. The theme of a Caribbean worldview makes this book a pioneering contribution to Caribbean studies. The collection also contains an autobiographical essay by Professor Chevannes.

Introduction HORACE LEVY. Rather, it is a collection of articles bursting spontaneously around a powerful theme:The African-Caribbean Worldview and the Making of the Caribbean. This book is about the identity of Caribbean people, the bold, if at times meandering, steps of its emergence and the creative breadth of its embrace across the region. This theme generated a wealth of wide-ranging contributions from both West Indians and non-West Indians from around the world, those who have glimpsed and been struck by the worldview and the making. So this book makes no claim to be all-inclusive and exhaustive on its subject.

He has published on community violence and compiled They Cry ""Respect"": Urban Violence and Poverty in Jamaica.
