"This retrospective on past Caribbean labour struggles provides the beginnings of a region-wide comparative perspective. Extending initial insights from the Anglophone to the Hispanic Caribbean, and from the momentous upheavals of the 1930s to the present, the essays examine the pivotal role which labour has played, and continues to play, in shaping not only the political culture of the region and its history, but also its domestic and social organization. Moreover, the essays tease out many of the activities and much of the activism which has been obscured not only by biases in the historical record, but by those of the labour leadership. Thus, the role of women in labour and revolutionary activities, and the role of memory on historical consciousness and contemporary activism are crucially brought to the surface. Revisiting Caribbean Labour is written o provide today s Caribean labour movements with an understanding of their history that can help them more effectively face the challenges of today. It is an expansion and tribute to the work of O. Nigel Bolland on the British Caribbean. "

In 1834 Antigua became the only British colony in the Caribbean to move directly from slavery to full emancipation. Immediate freedom, however, did not live up to its promise, as it did not guarantee any level of stability or autonomy, and the implementation of new forms of coercion and control made it, in many ways, indistinguishable from slavery. In Troubling Freedom Natasha Lightfoot tells the story of how Antigua's newly freed black working people struggled to realize freedom in their everyday

From South Africa in the nineteenth century to Hong Kong today, nations around the world, including the United States, have turned to guestworker programs to manage migration. These temporary labor recruitment systems represented a state-brokered compromise between employers who wanted foreign workers and those who feared rising numbers of immigrants. Unlike immigrants, guestworkers couldn't settle, bring their families, or become citizens, and they had few rights. Indeed, instead of creating a manageable form of migration, guestworker programs created an especially

This edited volume brings together academics, activists and officials from international organizations who believe that the choice of a criminal law response arose from a particular alignment of geo-political interests of developed countries in the wake of globalization. Adopting an inter-disciplinary, multi-stakeholder approach, contributors to
