Creole culture is a universal phenomenon which is multicultural by nature. This study provides a comprehensive, international bibliography of Creole cultures and languages with which researchers can further investigate culture formation and national identity cohesion. Starting from Creole cultures of the United States and moving outward to the Caribbean, Latin America, Asia, the Middle East and Africa, the extent of Creole as a national identity becomes apparent. The definition of what constitutes a Creole varies around the world.

Reviews

“Dr. Sheppard, a curious scholar who always tries to explore explanations beyond what we have received via conventional means, follows real data to study the complex processes that guide human interaction in different scenarios and times…this book is a tribute to the people who due to diverse and painful circumstances rebelled by creating a language and an identity as a means of survival.”
–Dr. Manuel J. Gutiérrez,
Professor of Linguistics,
University of Houston


“The topic of creole and pidgin languages is a very interesting and important one, as is creole as a racial and cultural category. The bibliography is clear…the topic is of widespread concern, and some of the works listed are histories of particular regions and families, and therefore interesting not only to specialists but to students wishing to know more about this subject.”
-Dr. Lois Parkinson Zamora,
Professor of Comparative Literature,
University of Houston


“This is a good introduction to the Creole world and its issues. It should be widely used by those interested in Creole Studies.”
-Dr. Pete Gregory,
Southwestern State University, Louisiana
