As a whole, Cuban history, culture, and art are often misconstrued with a heritage specific to Havana. In Cuba's Wild East, Peter Hulme attempts to right this wrong, focusing on the eastern region of the island and the specific fictions, poetries, locations, and histories that constitute a specific eastern culture. Examining a region with a rich insurgent and revolutionary history, Peter Hulme examines the stories of rebellion, heroism, and sacrifice that are so intimately tied to the places and sites that have now become part of a national pantheon, at the same time showing the international influence of US journalists and novelists whose presence in Cuban literature alongside native Cuban writers further defines the region as a place of encounter.

From sugar to indentured labourers, tobacco to reggae music, Europe and North America have been relentlessly consuming the Caribbean and its assets for the past five hundred years. In this fascinating book, Mimi Sheller explores this troublesome history, investigating the complex mobilities of producers and consumers, of material and cultural commodities, including: foodstuffs and stimulants - sugar, fruit, coffee and rum human bodies - slaves, indentured labourers and service workers cultural and knowledge products - texts, music, scientific collections and ethnology entire 'natures' and landscapes consumed by tourists as tropical paradise. Consuming the Caribbean demonstrates how colonial exploitation of the Caribbean led directly to contemporary forms of consumption of the region and its products. It calls into question innocent indulgence in the pleasures of thoughtless consumption and calls for a global ethics of consumer responsibility.

'This will be a useful text for courses in postcolonial literature, especially those that have an emphasis on travel and inter-cultural encounter. However, it also may have a broader appeal for graduate courses and research concerned with the cultural geography of race, ethnicity and indigeneity.' -Cultural Geographies'The book addresses a compelling range of questions about travel, indigenous identity and postcoloniality... A key contribution of this book is its exploration of complex questions of race and ethnicity.' -Cultural GeographiesRemnants of Conquest offers a detailed account of the modern writers who have visited the Caribs, descendents of the supposedly fierce tribe in the West Indies who fought against European invaders for three centuries. Writers include Jean Rhys and Patrick Leigh Fermor.
