Rezensionen
"An extraordinary tool for teaching the Caribbean from pre-1492 to the present! Historian Nicola Foote expertly combines concise introductions, written and visual sources, and pioneering analyses by leading scholars to present the key themes of Caribbean history, with a special emphasis on encounters, migration, labor, and politics. This volume will enable readers and students to discover the astonishing diversity and resourcefulness of the Caribbean people over several centuries."
