Rum Histories

Drinking in Atlantic Literature and Culture

«Fascinating and accessible, this important book situates rum as a potent economic, cultural, and specifically literary product in the Caribbean." - Supriya M. Nair, Tulane University, author of Pathologies of Paradise: Caribbean Detours

"This outstanding and engaging study uses the lens of rum to untangle the legacies of Caribbean colonialism and to challenge discourse that has demonized and eroticized the Caribbean region. Drawing on popular novels and historical scholarship, this theoretically sophisticated study is grounded in postcolonial studies, literary criticism, alcohol studies, and the anthropology of the Caribbean. Rum, according to Nesbitt, is simply "strange." However, a critical reading of rum histories offers Nesbitt a unique, and sometimes blurred, prism through which to confront colonial tropes and examine competing political dichotomies in the modern global community." - Frederick H. Smith, North Carolina A&T State University»
