A New World Order: Selected Essays

by Caryl Philips
£7.99   paperback  Vintage (2002)

A New World Order: Selected Essays by Caryl Philips A New World Order ranges widely across the Atlantic World that Caryl Philips has charted in his award-winning novels and non-fiction. He argues that there is a 'new world order' of cultural pluraliy, one which is being promoted by the increasingly central role of the migrant and the refugee in the modern world. He goes on to relect on the work of such seminal figures as Derek Walcott, V.S. Naipaul, J.M. Coetzee and Nadine Corimer, Steven Spielberg, Linton Kwesi Johnson and Marvin Gaye.
 
Philips writes about the moment when St Kitts, the island of his birth, became independent and talks about the responsibility of being a writer born into a postcolonial world who lives on both sides of the Atlantic. He then turns the spotlight on Britain, speculating about his parents' migration in the late fifties, the continued legacy of racism, his own helpless loyalty to Leeds United, and his anxieties at feeling as though he is both of, and not of, Britain.
