Summary
"Routes and Roots is the first comparative study of Caribbean and Pacific Island literatures and the first work to bring indigenous and diaspora literary studies together in a sustained dialogue. Taking the "tidalectic" between land and sea as a dynamic starting point, Elizabeth DeLoughrey foregrounds geography and history in her exploration of how island writers inscribe the complex relation between routes and roots." "Original in its approach, Routes and Roots engages broadly with history, anthropology, and feminist, post-colonial, Caribbean, and Pacific literary and cultural studies. It traverses diaspora and indigenous studies in a way that will facilitate broader discussion between these often segregated disciplines."--BOOK JACKET
