[First paragraph]With the usual solemnity, it is once again our duty to announce the annual Caribbeanist Hall of Shame. As always, we list those books that, as of press time (January 1999), have not been reviewed because the scholars who agreed to the task have - despite reminder letters - neither provided a text nor relinquished the books so that they could be assigned to someone else. (Continuing the practice initiated in 1997, we indicate names with both initial and final letters, in an attempt to forestall false accusations and protect the reputations of the innocent.) And as in past years, we hope these paragraphs may serve as a kind of backlist "books received." We are pleased to report that the advent of email has helped make this year's list even briefer than in the past. (As George Mentore wrote, in reply to an email, "Thank you for the gentle reminder; shame, as you know, always works for Caribbeanists.") And we join other NWIG readers in expressing heartfelt thanks to all those scholars who did take the time to prepare reviews and share their assessments.
