Drummond, Lee . "The Cultural Continuum: A Theory of Intersystems." Royal Anthropological Institute of Great Britain and Ireland 15.2 (1999): 352-374. Print.
This book is relevant to my paper because the author focuses on creole linguistics as an example of cultural continuum. The author believes that the Guyanese cultural continuum should be based on ethnic identity in that there are many differences in the greater creole society. Given that the creole linguistics has a diverse society, the creole society try to make an intra-system that builds a bridge between different creole ethnicities. Though this source was published in 1999, the source will be helpful in my research.

This source will be important for my research because it talks about some of the authors that are exponents of ethnography. For instance, this book talks about Raul Prebisch who argues that indigenous cultures have been affected by the globalization. Globalization has brought changes among indigenous cultures in that they have been forced to assimilate into the technological ways, which means that they had to forget their cultural roots. Thus, cultural continuum has been affected by the global changes around the country.

This book is crucial to my paper because the author discusses some of the key characteristics og the Guyanese continuum. Given that one’s phenotype matters across different societies, the Guyanese people integrate ethnic ascription in the Guyanese social life. This means that ethnicity can be considered as a cultural entity among the Guyanese people. This book was published in 1998, but will be important in my research.
