Formerly British Honduras : A Profile Of The New Nation Of Belize Paperback / softback


William Setzekorn weaves the folklore, facts, history, culture, economics and geography of Belize into an exciting mini-encyclopedia.

His portrait of this proud new nation is painted with humor, gentleness, fact and empathy presenting a credible picture of modern day Belize.

Reading with the ease and excitement of a novel it is more than a history book, a travelog or an encyclopedia giving the reader a feeling of kinship with the struggles and joy of this tiny new nation.

A mixture of Africans, Mestizos, East Indians, Europeans, Syrians, Lebanese, Mayans, and Chinese; Belize has grown into a heterogenous mosaic of a strong and brave country which is no bigger than Cambridge, Massachusetts.

Studying the influences of British domination and Spanish intimidation up to the recent movements for self-government and independence, Setzekorn presents to the reader an accounting of Belizean social and political vicissitudes-a long and tortuous, yet coherent, struggle for national and cultural identity.
