I first came across Tony Martin’s work in the late 1990s while I was reading
scholarship about Afro-America and the circum-Caribbean.  I was preparing to
do dissertation fieldwork in the Anglophone West Indies (Guyana), and I was
interested in work that addressed the manner in which race, class, and
nation had been thought about by scholars from the Caribbean.  Like Tony
Martin, I thought that there was an important dialogue of continued
relevance that had come out of this scholarship.  I was interested in the
work of C. L. R. James, Franz Fanon, George Padmore, and Walter Rodney – as
well as in some of the issues that arose out of the debates between Marcus
Garvey and W. E. B. DuBois that Tony Martin has dealt with in such detail.
