This unique book, part critique, tribute, and memorial, makes the case that the 1979-1983 Revolution was a transnational event that deeply impacted politics and culture across the Caribbean. With relevance for all micro-states, the book reflects on how Grenada's small size shapes memory, political and poetic practice, and efforts at reconciliation.
