Congratulations to Alejandra Bronfman on the release of her latest book, Isles of Noise, Sonic Media in the Caribbean. Dr. Bronfman's new book is described on the UNC Press site in the following way:

In this media history of the Caribbean, Alejandra Bronfman traces how technology, culture, and politics developed in a region that was "wired" earlier and more widely than many other parts of the Americas. Haiti, Cuba, and Jamaica acquired radio and broadcasting in the early stages of the global expansion of telecommunications technologies. Imperial histories helped forge these material connections through which the United States, Great Britain, and the islands created a virtual laboratory for experiments in audiopolitics and listening practices.
