A paradox in Caribbean attitudes to land

A paradox in Caribbean attitudes to land

Land and development in the Caribbean: 13-45

This chapter explores a paradox in Caribbean attitudes to land; namely, the perception of land by Afro-Caribbean peasantries as both an extremely scarce, and an unlimited, resource. This paradox was first identified in a Jamaican village, but subsequent documentary research has uncovered its existence throughout the Caribbean region.
