Mexicans, Haitians, Salvadorans, Cubans, Dominicans, West Indians, and Puerto Ricans, among other groups, have all sought to migrate to areas with more ecomic activity or less political repression than their native countries. Upon arrival in a new country, they face such problems as impersonal bureaucracies, racial prejudice, and job discrimination. The Caribbean Exodus is a welcome study of the historical, cultural, geographic, and ecomic forces behind these migrations. Examining many regions of the Caribbean, the contributors compare similarities and differences of the migrant experiences, both in their original countries and upon reaching their destinations. This timely book is an essential tool for understanding the complexities of the Caribbean migration and for developing informed and judicious policy.
