This book is 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 History examines 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, there are some thematic chapters within the broadly chronological framework. The author creates a readable narrative that contains the most recent scholarship and pays particular attention to the U.S.-Caribbean connection to more fully relate to readers.
