In 1992 Gabriel J. Christian and his long time partner in literary matters, then Canadian Associate Crown Attorney, Irving W. Andre, launched Pont Casse Press. The first publication of that initiative at placing a Dominica/indigenous perspective on Latin American Caribbean history and literature led to Andre and Christian co-authoring, “In Search of Eden: Dominica-The Travails of a Caribbean Mini State.”
In 1999 Gabriel J. Christian went on to author the critically acclaimed short story “Rain on a Tin Roof.” In 2002 a second edition of “Eden” was published: In Search of Eden, Essays on Dominican History.
Since 1992 Pont Casse Press has gone on to publish more than two dozen books on the Caribbean, Latin America and Diaspora history, society and politics . Andre and Christian have also authored numerous scholarly articles and essays on history, literature, rule of law and good governance.
In 2009 Pont Casse Press organized Caribbean Glory – A Tribute to the British West Indian Soldiers and Airmen who served in the British Army and Royal Air Force in World War II. The event, organized with the assistance of Her Excellency Glenda Morean Phillip, Ambassador of the Embassy of the Republic of Trinidad and Tobago to the United States and the West Indian American Military Members Association, was held at Andrews Air Force Base. The feature speaker at the event was Baroness Patricia Scotland, Her Brittanic Majesty’s Attorney General. In her historic address, she expressed the gratitude of the British people for the valiant West Indian effort in assuring victory in the struggle for freedom and democracy.
