    I went to Puerto Rico for New Years in 2007 to visit a friend from college I went expecting to see something familiar, something like the United States, orlike Florida, or evenlike the neighborhood in the Bronx I lived one summer But it was clearly very different from all of those, very much its own culture distinct from what I knew in the U.S and with a history obviously its

    This book is dense A comprehensive history of the Caribbean that feels like a course in Caribbean history I took over 3 months to complete this book but that saysabout my reading habits than it does about how enjoyable this book is Beginning with Columbus westward expedition, Williams tells the history of the Caribbean through to the then present published in 1970 and his hopes for

    Millions upon millions of people descend on the Caribbean every year for vacations on cruises or to spend all their time at hermetically sealed resorts in places like Jamaica, the Dom Rep as Germans call it , Cuba or the Virgin Islands Escapism from their everyday worlds is paramount sun, water activities and drinking not culture or history are on their agendas Every now and then, the des

    The ex PM of Trinidad and Tobago from independence in 1962 till his death in 1981 wrote what I believe is still an excellent history of the development of the Caribbean states literally as the book s title suggests While Williams is seeing most of the development of these now nations through a Marxist lens, I found his perspective both meaningful and helpful even today almost 50 years after the book finishes Wil

    A powerful work that vividly portrays the brutality inflicted first on the Taino victims of the conquest and later on the African slaves imported to work the sugar plantations and Asians brought over on term labor agreements after emencipation The book provides the economic, political and social forces that drove the European colonization Focus is 1492 through the 19th century, much less on 20th Very strong on the economics
