The essays in this collection are a tribute to Stuart Hall, and to the outstanding contribution he has made to contemporary cultural, social and political thought.

The central figure in the development of Cultural Studies, Stuart Hall’s writing has influenced a whole generation of intellectuals. Some essays reflect and comment on Hall’s contribution; others continue to develop some of his key themes. But most share a focus on reconnecting his work with Jamaica - his birthplace - and the wider Caribbean.

Brian Meeks is Professor of Social and Political Change at the University of the West Indies, Mona.
