Review of Colin Grant's Negro With a Hat.

If you work as I do on the anthropology of the Caribbean, then Marcus Garvey and Garveyism cast a long shadow. By any standards Garvey's legacy is worthy of reflection. Reading Colin Grant's fine biography gave me pause for thought regarding Garvey and also the excuse to put those thoughts into a review for the OAC. Garvey was the leader of the largest black internationalist movement that has ever existed, but a movement of a unique kind. Most of the internationalisms of the Twentieth…

Soda Drinkers of the World Unite

http://www.washingtonmonthly.com/blogphotos/Blog_Cola_Large.gif

I came across this demographic today. People in the Mid-West and the North West of the United States drink 'pop'. People who live in the South drink 'coke' and people on the West and East coasts drink 'soda'. Never having spent much time in the U.S. myself I wondered what this might mean. Of course, we have Tocqueville's…

North of the Border: narcocorridos

http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/console/b01dvw70

This BBC radio documentary explores the narcocorrido (drug smuggling ballad) as a popular genre among Mexicans in the U.S. Denselow, the journalist points to the ambivalence of the the border in the Mexican imagination. He traces the background to 1848 when the U.S. effectively annexed half of the landmass of Mexico including California. Ballads of…

EF Schumacher's Small is Beautiful: another look.

A few days ago I read an article in the Observer saying that Britain's right wing prime minister, David Cameron, had based one of his core ideas - 'The Big Society' - on Ernst Shumacher's book Small is Beautiful (truthfully nobody knows if the BS is an 'idea' or even what it means). The newsmedia also informs us that the government is trying to change the academic research…

Thanks for the greeting, Huon. Hello to you too. I hope to contribute to the Joanna Overing discussion in due course... and once I've worked out how to navigate this somewhat confusing site. Alan Passes

Hi Huon,

Thank you for your kind note - and for coming to Bergen. I sure learned a lot in what turned out to be two and a half rather intense days! We'll be in touch. Best, Kathinka

Huon, I wrote Keith last night to say that I was taking a break from OAC. I was angry at what I see as the knee-jerk negativity of your responses to my posts in the "Missing the Exemplary" thread. Apparently the ways in which we perceive the world we inhabit and the scholarship that attempts to understand it are so different that there is no possibility of productive conversation based on generous reading. That's too bad. This morning I was tempted to shorten my break by Ken Routon's post on "facts." I hope that we can reach an agreement that I will stay out of threads in which you participate if you return the favor. We both have a lot to contribute to OAC but not, at least for a while, together.

Dear Huon,
Apologies for the request, which probably seemed rather peculiar. The thing is, I just wanted to ask you a question, and couldn't work out how to send it. Sorry about that. It was just a query about the OAC Press.

Many thanks indeed, Huon.
