About this book

A concise and authoritative history of the entire region covering the large islands such as Cuba, Jamaica, Haiti, the Dominican Republic, Puerto Rico, Trinidad and Tobago, the Bahamas to the smaller islands in the The Netherlands Antilles, The Islands of the Eastern Caribbean and the French and British dependencies.

The Caribbean, a region of spectacular natural beauty, has a turbulent history of colonialism, slavery and resistance in which people from all continents have played their part.

Tracing the islands' path from slavery to revolution and independence, A Traveller's History of the Caribbean looks at the history of nations as different as Cuba, Jamaica and Haiti, explaining their diversity and their common experiences. It reveals a region in which a tumultuous past has created a culturally vibrant and intriguing present.
