Rezensionen
'Anyone embarking on a history of the Caribbean is faced with a complexity of problems. What, for a start, do you mean by the Caribbean? And how do you provide a chronological and analytical narrative that embraces widely divergent geographies, nationalities, and peoples over, say, a millennium? If any single historian is qualified to tackle the topic, [B. W.] Higman is surely the best ... A Concise History of the Caribbean is a rare book - an important study for all students of the Caribbean, but with a resonance that goes well beyond the Caribbean itself.' James Walvin, New West Indian Guide
