A grounded, compassionate, incisive critique of the environmental and cultural effects of neoliberal policies on Afro-indigenous, resource-dependent populations of the Central American Caribbean coast.
Crucially, the text interweaves political, economic, critical race and
ethnic studies, and gender analysis to provide a complex account
of the impact of neoliberalism on Garifuna communities.
—Mark Anderson, author of Black and Indigenous: Garifuna Activism and Consumer Culture in Honduras
This book is an excellent analysis of Garifuna resistance to
neoliberalism in Honduras with particular respect to land rights
under tourism development and conservation strategies.
—Helen Safa, author of The Myth of the Male Breadwinner: Women and Industrialization in the Caribbean
