Summary

An up-to-date, comprehensive survey of Caribbean history from pre-colonial times to the present. More centrally focused on the Caribbean than any other survey of the region, Caribbean Historyexamines a wide range of topics to give readers a thorough understanding of the region's history. The text favors a traditional, largely chronological approach to the study of Caribbean history, however, because it is impossible to be entirely chronological in the complex agglomeration of often disparate historical experiences, some thematic chapters occupy the broadly chronological framework. The author creates a readable narrative for undergraduates that contains the most recent scholarship and pays particular attention to the U.S.-Caribbean connection to more fully relate to students.
