Montserrat: Postal History of a Caribbean Island (Grand Award Exhibits) (Volume 3) by Peter P. McCann PhD Book Summary:
Usually Postal History means the study of rates, routes, and markings of an area or country. But such islands as Montserrat are small enough in every sense of the word that that my exhibit can also cover when various stamps issues as well as postal stationery were introduced, and the political factors that influenced these issues. Thus, the exhibit shows the first mails from and to Montserrat before a formal Post Office was opened in 1790 and then the development of such a separate Post Office within the complex structure of the Leeward Islands Colony. The exhibit finishes with the unusual mail censorship practices of Montserrat during World War II. Although a small island, the broad scope of the period from the 1760’s to 1945 allow Montserrat’s postal history to be a useful model for the development of the postal systems of many of the islands within the British Caribbean area. A note on the availability and scarcity of the material in the exhibit – the literate population in Montserrat was estimated to be 240 in 1881 and dropped in succeeding decades. The exhibit has received nine Gold Medals and two Grand Awards in national competition since it was first shown in 2008.
Living with the Unexpected: Linking Disaster Recovery to Sustainable Development in Montserrat by Anja K. Possekel Book Summary:
In 1980 my parents took me to St Lucia for the spring holidays. These vaca tions had - in the sense of the butterfly effect - considerable influence on my further curriculum. In the course of time I carried out many other journeys to the Caribbean. My colleagues even speak of an advancing "Caribbeanisation". This publication is the product of a lot of people who have supported and accompanied me during all this time. Most of my visits in the Caribbean were made possible by the DFG (Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft). It was of great advantage to my insight into Carib bean matters that I was able to participate in the DFG-financed research pro ject "Complex resource mangement on small Caribbean islands" for five years. The final phase of my dissertation about Montserrat was also financially supported, this time by the local funds of the University of Hamburg. Within the scope of the DFG project, I stayed on Montserrat for some The island fascinated me from my first encounter. This is especially months.
