Caribbean Critique seeks to define and analyze the distinctive contribution of francophone Caribbean thinkers to post-Kantian Critical Theory. The book argues that the singular project of these thinkers has been to forge a brand of critique that, while borrowing tools from North Atlantic predecessors such as Rousseau, Hegel, Marx, and Lukacs, was from the start marked indelibly by the experiential imperatives of the Middle Passage, slavery and imperialism. Individual chapters address thinkers such as Toussaint Louverture, Victor Schoelcher, Aime and Suzanne Cesaire, Rene Menil, Frantz Fanon, Maryse Conde, Edwidge Danticat, and Edouard Glissant, while an extensive theoretical introduction defines the essential parameters of 'Caribbean Critique'.
