  • Comparative Analysis of the Status of French Guiana, Mayotte and New
           Caledonia
    • Abstract: This article focuses on three overseas territories of the French Republic, namely French Guiana, Mayotte and New Caledonia. The determining factors for selection of these territories were different geographic location (French Guiana is located in South America, Mayotte in the Indian Ocean and New Caledonia in the Pacific) on one hand, and similar size of the population (French Guiana has 240,000 inhabitants, Mayotte has 220,000 inhabitants and New Caledonia has 320,000 inhabitants) on the other hand. The aim of the article is to analyse and compare the status of the surveyed territories. The key argument is that the intensity of the link between these territories, as territories under the sovereignty of the French ... Read More

  • Aportes a la bioestratigrafía del Aptiense–Albiense en la cuenca

    • Abstract: Las secuencias correspondientes al Cretácico Inferior en el Oriente de Venezuela, afloran en diversas localidades en la Serranía del Interior y en las islas frente a Puerto La Cruz, siendo objetivo de estudio desde los principios de la exploración geológica en Venezuela (Odehnal y Falcón 1989).En Venezuela, los trabajos llevados a cabo por las compañías petroleras pioneras en exploración en el oriente del país, como el de Rod y Maync (1954), posteriormente Guillaume, Bolli y Beckmann (1972), Falcón (1989a y b), así como Vivas (1987), Vivas y Macsotay (1995) y, más recientemente, Bolli, Beckmann y Saunders (1994), constituyen una fuente fundamental de información estratigráfica para esta región.

  • Coconuts and Collards: Recipes and Stories from Puerto Rico to the Deep
           South by Von Díaz (review)
    • Abstract: En las últimas dos décadas, la publicación de libros sobre cocina puertorriqueña —y sobre su historia y sus componentes básicos— ha cobrado un inusitado interés, algo sorprendente que va a contracorriente de los pronósticos que vaticinaban el fin de la cocina escrita, convirtiéndose en sedimento inocuo de los “reality shows” culinarios y los millones de vídeos de YouTube.Todo lo contrario. Un inventario preliminar para Puerto Rico muestra que entre 1996 y el 2018 se publicaron 31 recetarios sobre cocina puertorriqueña, sin sumar las reimpresiones recientes de los clásicos Cocine a Gusto (primera ed. 1950) de Berta Cabanillas, Carmen Quirós y Carmen Mercado; Cocina Criolla (primera ed. 1954), de Carmen Aboy de ...

  • Liberal or Conservative, Left or Right: The Identification with
           Ideological Labels by Puerto Rican Legislators
    • Abstract: The use of the liberal/conservative and left/right ideological dimensions and their ideological labels has generated considerable research and academic debates in the United States, Europe, and more recently in Latin America. Most of this research has focused on mass publics (Inglehart and Klingemann 1976; Jacoby 1988, 1991; Levitin and Miller 1979; Layman and Carsey 2002; Fuchs and Klingemann 1990; Conover and Feldman 1981; Herrera 1996–1997; Kuklinski and Hurley 1994; Zschirnt 2011; Vegetti and Širinić 2019; Zechmeister 2006; Wiesehomeier 2010; Harbers, de Vries and Steenbergen 2012; Zechmeister and Corral 2012; among many others).

  • Sponsored Migration: The State and Puerto Rican Postwar Migration to the
           United States by Edgardo Meléndez (review)
    • Abstract: This book is an attempt to provide a comprehensive history of Puerto Rican migration to the continental United States in the decades after the end of WWII. This is an ambitious book and despite its shortcomings it takes its place among a recent wave of historically framed and archive based monographs that aim to dispel myths and provide more empirical evidence and thematic coverage to the story of Puerto Rican migration between 1945 and the 1960s. The study is an important contribution to the literature on Puerto Rican migration. The principal argument is that Puerto Rico’s colonial government had a complex but critical role in the evolution of migration policy in the post WWII years. Even if one disagrees with the ...

  • Ryan Recalls. Selwyn Ryan: His Memoirs by Selwyn Ryan, and: Historical
           Dictionary of Trinidad and Tobago. New Edition ed. by Rita Pemberton et
           al. (review)
    • Abstract: The Trinidadian penchant for “dictionaries” or “Who’s Who” of prominent people is a veritable boon to historians and social scientists. It is not simply a collective affinity for vanity. There is arguably a real wider function to such works in a plural society with real social and ethnic separations by providing useful information on otherwise “alien” groups. Some prominent cases will illustrate.It is difficult to understand pre-Independence Trinidad without consulting Lloyd Sydney Smith’s 1950 Who, What, Why which has the advantage of having photos of nearly all the entrants. The pictures reveal a mostly white and heavily expatriate elite. Ironically, according to the editor, this Who’s Who marks the end of the ... Read More

           (review)
    • Abstract: The surge in monographs focusing on study of Black Atlantic religions in the past decade is changing the intellectual landscape of how scholars can now research and teach about Caribbean religions. While ethnographic studies of these traditions continue to dominate the field, scholars are finding inter-disciplinary entry points and conversations partners to frame their presentation of the complex and trans-national nature of these religions. In addition, scholars are engaging different sources to tell the story and expression of these religions. Three recent books published in the field demonstrate the increasing role of the aesthetic and material objects in the study of Caribbean religion.Jana Evans Braziel’s ... Read More

  • La historia de los derrotados: Americanización y romanticismo en Puerto
           Rico, 1898–1917 by Rubén Nazario Velasco (review)
    • Abstract: Como un axioma, se suele afirmar que la historia la escriben siempre los vencedores. Desde tal óptica, las versiones predominantes acerca del pasado serían meras “historias oficiales”. Tal sería el caso, sobre todo, de las historias nacionales, elaboradas con el fin de expresar en esencia las concepciones del Estado y de los grupos de poder. La “visión de los vencidos” quedaría, pues, silenciada, amordazada o hasta reprimida. De ahí que ciertos intelectuales se dediquen con fervor a desenterrar estas últimas versiones del pasado, impugnando así la “memoria del poder”.Luciría, pues, que La historia de los derrotados reivindica esas historias silenciadas por el poder. Debido a su subtítulo —Americanización y ... Read More

  • In Memoriam of Lambros Comitas (1927–2020)
    • Abstract: Lambros Comitas’s anthropological career began in the mid-1950s in the British Caribbean and spanned over six decades. His initial study of the sociocultural effects of mechanization of the fishing fleet in the Barbadian coastal community of Bathsheba was followed by an investigation of the impact of government-sponsored fishing cooperatives on five coastal settlements in Jamaica. From this research, he formulated the concept of “occupational multiplicity,” a framework to describe the complex lives of workers who were involved in multiple economic activities for survival.Lambros Comitas-in his office/library at Teachers College.With Dr. Vera Rubin, he co-authored Ganja in Jamaica: A Medical Anthropological Study of ...

Tan seria es la situación que el acceso a 20 litros de agua por persona por día ha sido declarado un requisito mínimo para cumplir con las necesidades del ser humano (UNDP 2006). Existe amplia literatura sobre la disposición a pagar (DAP) de los residentes por aumentar la disponibilidad (Raje, Dhobe y Deshpande 2002; Hensher, Shore y Train 2005; Casey, Khan y Rivas 2006; Hensher, Shore y Train 2006; Genius et al. 2008; MacDonald Morrison y Barnes 2010) o calidad del agua (Barton 2002; Abramson et al. 2011; Vásquez 2014; Uwera y Stage 2015) en diferentes regiones del mundo.

           historiografía de los primeros 100 años de arqueología en las islas de
           Cubagua y Margarita 1915–2019
    • Abstract: En el año 2015 se cumplieron 100 años de las primeras excavaciones arqueológicas realizadas en la isla de Margarita, gracias a la visita a la isla del arqueólogo de origen holandés Theodoor de Booy quien, un año después, en 1916, publicó el primer texto científico dedicado a mostrar los resultados de esta expedición bajo el título Notes on the Archaeology of Margarita Island, Venezuela (De Booy 1916). Estos más de 100 años son la ocasión propicia para realizar una reconstrucción histórica e historiográfica de esta disciplina en una región que, pese a ver nacer la práctica arqueológica en el país, poco se ha beneficiado de ella. Otros esfuerzos por reconstruir la historia de la arqueología en Venezuela se han ... Read More

  • Las islas migajas: los países no independientes del Caribe contemporáneo

    • Abstract: El texto reseñado constituye un aporte a los estudios caribeños, a la historia política del Caribe y al análisis comparativo de temas que disciplinas como la Psicología, la Antropología, la Sociología, la Historia y la Ciencia Política han estudiado consistentemente en los tiempos recientes. Temas tales como la identidad cultural, la cuestión nacional, la soberanía, la seguridad, las formas de organizar el gobierno y el Estado, las nacionalidades y ciudadanías han recibido bastante tratamiento tomando los casos de otros países y regiones. No obstante, el Caribe no independiente permanece rezagado en el análisis trans e interdisciplinario de estos temas.El libro consta de 7 capítulos, divididos en dos partes ... Read More

  • Tell My Mother I Gone to Cuba by Sharon Milagro Marshall (review)
    • Abstract: One of the issues facing scholars of the Caribbean scene, is the relative paucity of works in English, detailing the encounter of Anglophone Caribbean migrant laborers with their counterparts in the Hispanic Caribbean. There have been a few treatments of migration to the Hispanic Caribbean, as for example, Elizabeth Thomas-Hope (1978), “The Establishment of a Migration Tradition: British West Indian Movements to the Hispanic Caribbean in the Century after Emancipation” (1978); Elizabeth Petras (1988), “Jamaican Labor Migration: White Capital and Black Labor 1850–1930;” Lancelot Lewis (1980), “The West Indian in Panama;” and Velma Newton (1984), “The Silver Men: West Indian Migration to Panama, 1850–1914.” This ...

  • En Memoria de Alejandro García Álvarez (1932–2020)
    • Abstract: El pasado 19 de junio falleció en La Habana el historiador Alejandro García Álvarez. Nacido en Matanzas el 6 de febrero de 1932, el Dr. García Álvarez era Académico de número de la Academia de la Historia de Cuba y Premio Nacional de Historia 2019. Su nutrida obra historiográfica contribuyó al mejor conocimiento del pasado cubano, particularmente en el terreno de la economía.
