1 Cubana and Aeroflot planes at the abandoned Pearls Airport, Grenada. Source: Puri 2007 34 S. PURI Fig. 2 Planes at Pearls Airport, rainy season. Source: Puri 2007 One rainy season when I was there, the planes were partially submerged, so overgrown that from certain angles they appeared to merge with the hills. The two planes raised several of the questions that were to become the focus of my book: the question of submerged but residual memory, the question of the relationship of the Grenada Revolution to the rest of the Caribbean (here embodied by the Cuban plane), and the vexed question of how Marxist theory inhabited the local landscape.

One obvious reason is that, unlike the more-analyzed cases of collective trauma—the Holocaust, slavery, the genocides and massacres in Rwanda, Guatemala, Argentina, and El Salvador—the numbers of the dead in Grenada were relatively small: 14 people murdered, some others killed trying to escape, some dissidents held and tortured, nothing like the tens of thousands or millions in the cases upon which trauma studies most often focuses. The predicament of Grenada could not be understood and would likely not be approached at all if one thought of it in terms of numerical scale.
