The literature on the Caribbean includes various studies of migration, but these, for the most part, deal with some aspect of emigration or urbanization (Ashcraft 1972; Braithwaite 1961; Gonzalez 1969, 1975; Hendricks 1974; Philpott 1973; and Proudfoot 1950). There are few anthropological data on resettlement schemes in the Caribbean and even fewer on resettlement resulting from a natural disaster, despite the frequency with which disasters have occurred.
