As someone who lived in Martinique for two years, I was aware of this informal economy and its importance to Martinicans. That made it all the more intriguing to read the way Browne makes what is implicit in Martinican society explicit and connects it to macro levels of history, gender, and class with respect to slavery. A great read for Caribbeanist students and researchers and people with an interest in Caribbean culture!

A mix of cultures combine to create an amazing and unique identity of language, music, economics, history, and cultural influences from both the past and the present.
