About the Author

Lara Putnam is associate professor of history at the University of Pittsburgh and author of The Company They Kept: Migrants and the Politics of Gender in Caribbean Costa Rica, 1870-1960.


Radical Moves is splendid, engagingly written, and keenly researched.--Journal of American History

Putnam makes a range of important interventions beyond the study of jazz.--Journal of Colonialism and Colonial History

Putnam's greatest contribution comes from her ability to bring seemingly disparate stories together to tell a transnational history of migration, racism, and everyday resistance."-Hispanic American Historical Review

A tightly argued case of terrific historical scholarship.--H-Net Reviews

A major work, one that illuminates a region and shows the surprising commonalities between the experiences of those within the United States and its hemispheric neighbors in the years leading up to World War II. The traces of those commonalities resonate into the present day, like a "regge" dance in Port Limon, for those who learn to listen.--Los Angeles Review of Books

Scholars of both the British Caribbean and Latin America are sure to be enthused by Lara Putnam's latest monograph.--The Americas

Both an enjoyable read and a very important book.--American Historical Review

Filled with insightful details. . . . A very exciting and refreshing take on circum-Caribbean migrations and black internationalism. Putnam hits multiple high notes in this scholarly composition.--Journal of African American History

This extraordinarily thoughtful, original, well-researched study is delightfully and engagingly written. . . . Highly recommended. All levels/libraries.--Choice
