In Tropical Apocalypse, Martin Munro engages with the contemporary apocalyptic turn in Caribbean studies and lived reality, not only providing important historical contextualization for a general understanding of apocalypse in the region but also offering an account of the state of Haitian society and culture in the decades before the 2010 earthquake. Through an interdisciplinary exploration, the author situates the question of the Caribbean apocalypse in relation to broader, global narratives of the apocalyptic present-notably Slavoj Zizek's Living in the End Times- and traces the evolution of apocalyptic thought in the work of Aime Cesaire, Frantz Fanon, Antonio Benitez-Rojo, Edouard Glissant, Michael Dash, David Scott, and others.
