This book argues that the Caribbean frontier, usually assumed to have been eclipsed after colonial conquest, remains a powerful but unrecognised element of Caribbean island culture. Combining analytical and creative genres of writing, it explores historical and contemporary patterns of frontier change through a case study of the little-known Eastern Caribbean multi-island state of St Vincent and the Grenadines. Modern frontier traits are located in the wandering woodcutter, the squatter on government land and the mountainside ganja grower. But the frontier is also identified as part of global production that has shaped island tourism, the financial sector and patterns of migration.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'Philip Nanton provides a compelling sociological analysis of a frontier society, revealing the value and promise of "the frontier" as a conceptual tool with which to explore the impact of globalisation. The book is beautifully written, offering an extraordinarily vivid picture of St Vincent's history and its physical, social and cultural topography. It is also highly original, both methodologically and conceptually, with an unconventional structure that seems to mirror the author's arguments about frontiers. This can be unsettling but it pushes the reader to reflect on other boundaries, such as that between art and science, poetry and sociology.' Julia O'Connell Davidson, Professor in Social Research, University of Bristol 'Itis a highly original and unconventional study of SVG, past and present.' BridgetBrereton, Journal of West Indian Literature 25, 2, 125-127 -- .
