830 }âEARLY AMERICAN LITERATURE: VOLUME 52 , NUMBER 3 rhythms and religious practices and rituals are particularly noteworthy, especially the discussion of commonalities in the lives of Irish and African coerced laborers. The only drawback is that the bigger picture is sometimes hard to see; more context is needed to situate what transpired in Barbados and the Leeward Islands within the larger Atlantic world. Were similar processes at work in Jamaica or other regions of the non-Â ispanic Caribbean? Also, some readers will be unfamiliar with the history of Irish servants or African slavery in the English Caribbean; thus, a brief discussion would have been helpful, given the prominent role each played in the book. Setting aside these minor quibbles, this is a welcome addition to scholarship on the early English Caribbean. Thanks to Jenny Shaw and her careful (re)reading of source material, we have a more nuanced understanding of not only how the English created difference but also how the Irish and Africans contributed to constructions of difference in the seventeenth cenr tury, a crucial yet often overlooked period. This is a must-Â ead for scholars interested in the Caribbean and in colonial America. david m. stark
