About this product
- DescriptionIn Free and French in the Caribbean, John Patrick Walsh studies the writings of Toussaint Louverture and Aime Cesaire to examine how they conceived of and narrated two defining events in the decolonializing of the French Caribbean: the revolution that freed the French colony of Saint-Domingue in 1803 and the departmentalization of Martinique and other French colonies in 1946. Walsh emphasizes the connections between these events and the distinct legacies of emancipation in the narratives of revolution and nationhood passed on to successive generations. By reexamining Louverture and Cesaire in light of their multilayered narratives, the book offers a deeper understanding of the historical and contemporary phemen of free and French in the Caribbean.
