JSTOR has a "moving wall," which represents the time period between the last issue available in JSTOR and the most recently published issue of a journal. Publishers determine the moving wall length in their license agreements with JSTOR. Moving walls may range from zero to ten years, and those with walls from zero to seven years participate in our revenue sharing program. In calculating the moving wall, the current, incomplete year is not counted.

Explores one the of most influential theorists of the anti-colonial movement, as it follows Fanon from his birth in 1925 on the French island of Martinique through his medical training in France, then to Algeria where he joined the liberation struggle.
In 1946, at a time when other French colonies were just beginning to break free of French imperial control, the people of the French Antilles-the Caribbean islands of Martinique and Guadeloupe-voted to join the French nation as departments. This examines the Antilleans' more peaceful but perhaps equally vexing process of forging a national identity in the French empire.

Caribbean Dynamics by Béatrice Boufoy-Bastick (Editor); Savrina Chinien (Editor)
In Caribbean Dynamics: Re-configuring Caribbean Culture, the authors present the multi-vocality of Caribbean culture with an integrated overview of the social, political and cultural themes that dominate the Caribbean landscape. Francophone, Anglophone, Dutch and Spanish creolization in the Caribbean is examined to reveal reconfigured national and regional identities. Divided into 3 main sections, the first, 'The Dynamics of Carib-being', looks at how literature has helped to shape Caribbean identities. The second section, 'Performing Arts: Mapping out the Caribscape' presents the diversity of Caribbean culture, while the third section, 'Transcending Adversity to Foster a Caribbean Culturalist Ethos' examines how Caribbean cultural identity is articulated and translated in social and government policies.
In Obeah and Other Powers, historians and anthropologists consider how marginalized spiritual traditions--such as obeah, Vodou, and Santeria--have been understood and represented across the Caribbean since the seventeenth century.

The book is trilingual (English, Creole, and French) and includes a foreword by award-winning author and historian Robin D.G. Kelley.
