The Caribbean History Pocket Encyclopedia Paperback / softback
The book is illustrated and explores various themes and ideas taught on Caribbean History at the CXC level through-out the region, and should serve as a handbook of basic data.
It seeks to correct the imbalance found in several traditional texts aimed at similar audiences but which have a distinctly European perspective.
The author tries to encourage our students to see Caribbean history as their history, one which they can be justifiably proud of and one which they will eventually come to see as more than just ?another subject to pass?.
For general audiences the text is an easy read, a source to consult for quick facts about the Caribbean.
There are no other books covering Caribbean History in this way.
