The Caribbean Post-Colonial: Social Equality, Post Nationalism and Cultural Hybridity. London: Palgrave Macmillan, 2004. Puri takes issue with postcolonial theorists Homi Bhabha et a. for being unself-critically metropolitan and insufficiently grounded in a specific social reality. A central concern of the book is to distance itself from abstract notions of hybridity and to root the concept in historical analysis. This requires the recognition that there are many hybridities and that discourses in hybridity are conjunctionally framed.

Drawing on the long and varied history of discourses of cultural hybridity across the caribbean, this book explores the rich and fraught cultural crossings that are often theorized homogeneously in postcolonial studies as 'hybridity'. What is the relationship of cultural hybridity to social equality? Why have some forms of hybridity been enshrined in the caribbean imagination and others disavowed?

In framing the Caribbean postcolonial in terms of equality as well as difference, Puri thus offers postcolonialism a means of re-af®rming its commit-ment to the anti-colonial project's utopian dream of creating a truly free and democratic society, while still acknowledging the limitations of nationalist movements rooted in modernist master narratives and streamlined constructions of & people' or &.the folk' as a political subject.

What is the appeal of cultural hybridity to nationalist and post-nationalist projects alike? What can we learn from the hybridization of Afro-caribbean and Indo-caribbean cultures set in motion by slavery and indentureship?
