GEOGRAPHY: THE CARIBBEAN


JOSEPH LEONARD SCARPACI, JR., Professor of Marketing, Department of Economics and Business, Virginia Military Institute, and Professor Emeritus of Geography, Virginia Polytechnic Institute

THE LITERATURE UNDER REVIEW emphasizes the fragility of the physical environment as studied by local scholars of the Caribbean (items #bi2009000036#, #bi2008001695#, #bi2007000087#, #bi2006002475#, #bi2006002480#, #bi2006002761#, #bi2006002207#, #bi2006001566#, #bi2008000358#, #bi2008001204#, #bi2005002032#, #bi2005002035#, and #bi2007000331#). Also evident are interdisciplinary studies that weave myriad social science perspectives on place, landscape, and heritage with elements from the humanities (items #bi2009004642#, #bi2009004622#, and #bi2009004617#) and environmental (items #bi2009000039#, #bi2009004627#, and #bi2009000040#) and commodity histories (item #bi2009004133#). These literatures should serve as a benchmark against which the international focus on Haiti in the aftermath of its January 12, 2010, earthquake might rethink development policy (item #bi2009004637#) and the changing role of the peasantry (item #bi2008001081#) across the Caribbean.
