 Taylor, Nation Dance
Nation Dance: Religion, Identity, and Cultural Difference in the Caribbean is an appropriate title for the book since it is a profound critique of modernity which dislocated and fragmented the existence of non-European peoples consequent to European invasion of non-European cultures in the modern world.
Nation Dance indicates that Caribbean religious traditions might well be the matrix, or spatial womb, from which post-colonial worlds are born.
Caribbean religious genius in therefore to be appreciated in the ways in which the Africans, and other migrants into the Caribbean, reformulated their traditional religious epistemologies in response to the degrading Caribbean situation.

 Caribbean Poetry -- Nation Language
One thing that Caribbean writers are beginning to use more and more is their own individual nation language.
Nation language, on the other hand, seems to be the Caribbean's saving grace.
Although English is the official national language of many islands in the Caribbean, the people who live in the Caribbean speak in something other than the standard norm.

 Review The History Teacher, 37.2 The History Cooperative
However, the Encyclopedia of Cuba avoids extolling a single maxim of the Caribbean nation, and thus provides readers with a tool to unveiling Cuban history and its culture via the comparative accounts of Cubans living on the island and residing elsewhere.
With the exception of the first chapter, the rest of the encyclopedia takes into consideration renowned figures who have made their mark on and/or off the Caribbean nation, coupled with events that have shaped the nation's history as well as its domestic and foreign policy.
Although not a typical encyclopedia, the fascinating two-volume compilation on the Cuban nation includes twelve topical chapters for the reader to utilize as a guide to a particular inquiry.

 Caribbean Nation Facing Possible Split
The Caribbean island of Nevis is a pretty small place, and next week its horizons could become even smaller.
Islanders will vote on Monday in a referendum to decide if Nevis should pull out of its federation with neighbouring island St. Kitts, with which it has formed a single nation since independence from Britain in 1983.
The islands' Caribbean neighbours have also frowned on the secession bid.

 Profile
It was because of professor Isidor's writings and pronouncements for a democratic Haiti and against perpetual gross human rights violations and an unsavory dictatorship in the quasi-semi-Caribbean island nation that he was nearly assassinated by supporters and officials of the Haitian government, in 1991.
As the Haitian government continued not to serve freedom and promote the common good, but resorted to violence against peaceful citizens and advocates of democracy and human rights, however, to the surprise of hundreds of thousands of Haitian nationals and foreigners, professor Isidor became a more symbol of anti-dictatorship.
He is nationally and internationally recognized for his work in economics, business, journalism, and has earned a reputation for practicing what he teaches.

 ''The Nation" at 30 - A success story
But in its 30 years of existence, the 'Nation Publishing Company' has evolved as more than an integral partner in nation-building and promoter of Caribbean cooperation and integration.
The story of the 'Nation organisation', as edited by Harry Mayers in `Against the oddsÂ’, the book that was launched in November 1998 at the 'NationÂ’s 25th Anniversary Awards Ceremony, is there for all who are interested in being so informed.
But what the 30th anniversary of the younger 'nation' of the nation of Barbados reminds me, is the contrast between sloganeering and reality.

 Remarks of Ambassador Odeen Ishmael of Guyana at the Testimonial Dinner in Honor of Lance Gibbs - Miami, 16 March 1996
There are other areas in the fields of politics and economics which are being worked upon, but these will take some time to blend together for us to form a united Caribbean nation.
But when it comes to paying tribute to one who is regarded throughout Guyana and the Caribbean, and indeed the cricketing world, as a sports idol, it is very difficult not to repeat what has already been said at so many events like this.
I call upon cricket authorities in the Caribbean and also on governments of the Caribbean to utilize these skills that are available.

 Characters
Erik tans easily, wears the Greystone Rose as his symbol, obviously uses enough hairspray to deplete the ozone over a small Caribbean nation, and boasts a royal wardrobe which appears as if it were designed by Liberace on a major crimson-and-gold fetish day.
Her mind has always been far too preoccupied with having the very best clothes and the most expensive possessions, and on being the center of attention; she regards her birthday as something of a national holiday.
Even after establishing her credentials as the Uber-Damsel-in-Distress by being kidnapped, dropped in a moat, menaced by undead barbarians, etc., Ariel has never worried her pretty little head over the intricacies of the conflict between northern and southern Aperans.

 Jamaica Backs Cuba-Caribbean Trade
While some Caribbean leaders already expressed their displeasure with the congresswoman, Caricom is still two days away from formally replying, Patterson said in speaking before a group of U.S.-based Caribbean journalists hosted by the National Minority Business Council.
But there is a difference in their approaches to Cuba; the United States has a long-standing economic embargo against Cuba while the Caricom nations have been talking with Fidel Castro for several months about having their fellow Caribbean nation join the trade bloc.
We did not make Cuba a Caribbean nation," Patterson said.

The 27-year-old, already a national hero after winning a bronze medal in the 200 metres at the 2001 world championships in Edmonton, spends three months of the year in the Caribbean, and the rest of his time in Texas.

Collins said his victory would be celebrated long and hard on St Kitts and Nevis, two Caribbean islands with a combined population of 40,000 that gained independence from Britain in 1983.

 AP Analysis: Departure of Haiti's president latest in series of upheavals in the Caribbean nation
The sudden departure of Jean-Bertrand Aristide, the country's first freely elected president in its 200 years of independence, was almost predictable in a nation that has seen more than 30 coups d'etat.
At the end of the day, the former priest -- who ministered to slum-dwellers and was the hope of the hopeless in the hemisphere's poorest nation -- may have gotten off cheaply.
Inmates were freed from the National Penitentiary and several other jails around the country.
