I wanted to read this prior to my first trip to the Caribbean so I would better understand the area I was going to but I didn't uite make it I found it interesting enough though that when I got a chance a wanted to finish This book was published in the very early 90s but from what I have read most countries have not changed much in the intervening 20 years in some cases that is very sad but for most of the area that is a fairly good thing The history of the Caribbean is a brutal story in many ways and one in which Americans and Europeans have little to be proud of I hope we can do better in the future

Ten history revised and updated with new chapters that reflect the islands' most recent social economic and political developments is a work of impeccable scholarship Featuring maps charts tables and photographs it remains the ideal guide to the region and its peopl. This history was almost too brief to be useful jammed with statistics and one sentence summaries of persons places and events it actually tries to stuff too much into too small a container Would have been useful had it been 300% longer with better coverage of several features 1 relationship between colonial powers and imperialist interventionists and each of the Larger Antilles was given far too short shrift; 2 despite its central coverage the book is light on the causes and affects of the sugar trade taken in the limited frame of the Caribbean; 3 coverage of Saint DomingueHaiti prior to the American occupation is very poor even relevant map is missing; 4 the book is already in need of update since its 1992 publication Worthy to have on the shelf and chocked full of useful tidbits but a terrific slog to read cover to cover Even then I spent a lot of time on the internet getting background on key persons and places to fill in issues mentioned but unexplained in the book The book is only 292 pages and took me three weeks to finish
