[First paragraphs]After dishing out consecutive meals of pepper-pot, callaloo, rundown, migan, sancocho, and coo-coo, the NWIG bookcooks are weary and beg a respite. All else is here as usual; the only thing that's missing is the culinary metaphor.Once again it is our sad duty to publish the year's Caribbeanist Hall of Shame. As always, we list those books that (as of press time, January 1997) 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. (Rather than listingdelinquent reviewers by initials alone as in the past, we indicate both initial and final letters here, in an attempt to forestall false accusations and protect the reputations of the innocent.) As in past years, these paragraphs may serve as a kind of backlist "books received."
