Recent Comments "Alabi's World"

Alabi's World concerns Maroon history of Suriname, a small country in the northern part of South America. In general the word "Maroon" refers to people who escaped European slavery in the Americas or the Caribbean and established their own communities, often with the help of native peoples. The book deals, even more specifically, with the history of one particular Maroon tribe, the Saramakas (and one of their forefathers, the titular Alabi), who still live along the Saramacca River in Suriname. [...]

Price's discourse concerns the cultural confrontation between the Saramakas and the Colonials of Surniame. There is no thesis or arguement in this book. The author uses post modern methods through out the text to show this cultural confrontation. Price treats the subject matter with a holistic perspective and that is why there is no index to this monograph. The primary sources are awsome!!! Price uses these sources more then his own narrative for the discourse. A good book, since the reader can [...]
