Despite its modest size, the South American republic of Suriname is today the site of many distinctive processes of globalization, including mass immigration and emigration, re-democratization, widening income gaps, drug trafficking, and increasing diversity. Whereas past historical analyses of this remarkable nation have been largely preoccupied with ethnicity, this intersectional study teases out the complex relationships among class, gender, and ethnic identity over the course of Suriname's modern history, from the capital city of Paramaribo to the country's resource-rich rainforest. Author Rosemarijn Hoefte also places Suriname's history within a global and regional context, exploring both its South American and its Caribbean dimensions
