The book is a living sign of the Caribbean togetherness that Jeannette Allsopp calls for in her own text. Its sixteen chapters are divided into six sections on themes that were dear to Richard Allsopp’s heart. Lexicography is also well represented with contributions by Jeannette Allsopp, John Simpson, and Lise Winer. Winer makes an interesting methodological point about the use of (old/colonial) photographs as a means of word elicitation, even if European photographers have reinforced and perpetuated stereotypes by the way they selected, posed and framed images and exoticized (Bravman 1990) large parts of the population in the world.
