Less than 300 years old, the history of Mauritius is nonetheless one of the most dramatic stories ever told: a history of quest for treasure, buccaneering, slavery and the intense rivalry of European colonial powers to control the Indian Ocean approach to Southeast Asia.
Spectrum Guide to Mauritius narrates the country's fascinating history and reveals the stunning beauty of an island republic blessed as a rainbow nation - a melding of the world's ethnic groups blended together as a unity-in-diversity contrast of cultures and languages.
With more than 200 full-color photographs, this guide gives the reader the island's history, flora fauna, landscapes and cultures and provides detailed information on everything else a visitor needs to know to have an enjoyable stay.
