George Lamming, one of the towering figures of Caribbean letters, has been a tireless advocate for the full sovereignty of the region for the past half-century. Through his writing he acted as witness and conscience to the movement for independence. He held the conviction that a passion inspired by politics resides in every individual and he saw imaginative writing as the outlet that would generate a collective awareness of sovereignty.His thoughts span the black Atlantic community and yet his native region of the Caribbean, created by dislocation and human labour, remains at the centre of his concerns. Author of two early classics of the pre-independence period - "In The Castle of My Skin" and "The Pleasure of Exile" - Lamming has created a dazzling array of fiction and essays which are testimony to an imagination of uncommon power.In conjunction with the University of Warwick, Macmillan Caribbean presents the latest and most authoritative research in Caribbean Studies. The series aims to study the complexity and variety of a remarkable region and reflect the pan-Caribbean, inter-disciplinary approach of the Warwick University Centre for Caribbean Studies. It features new titles in the fields of history, sociology, economics and development, literature, anthropology and politics, as well as the re-issue of major works. Some are contributed by individual authors while others are collected papers from symposia at Warwick or elsewhere.
