    Book synopsis: Comprising 18 contributions, this book is a tribute to Robin Cohen's academic scholarship and intellectual impact. Some 50 colleagues and friends from the Caribbean, Africa, Europe, Canada and the USA gathered in Oxford for two days of reflection, celebration and recollection on the occasion of his seventieth birthday. The editors have included a selection of interventions from what was called the 'Robinfest', covering Robin Cohen's interests in labour studies, social movements, globalization, creolization, diaspora and migration. There are also a number of more personal accounts that attest to his qualities and influence. Robin Cohen worked and undertook research in many countries and made commanding contributions to international labour issues and the study of diasporas. His two books, 'The New Helots' and 'Global Diasporas' bookended the Oxford event. This collection is a keepsake of the occasion and one that will be of interest to those who have been affected by his work.
