Product Description


`conveniently brings together much scattered information and interestingly contrasts the development of Jamaica with that of Trinidad, Guiana, and Barbados.'Victorian Studies

`a useful synthesis...particularly cogent on the economic and political issues within the islands, showing their common concerns as well as their local variations.'Choice

`incisive, thorough, and well-written work ... a most useful comparative study.' Canadian Journal of History

`Green has succeeded admirably in presenting much material and analysis in a most clear and readable manner ... should become a vital complement to those studies concerned with the slave era, and is of interest to economic, social, and political historians dealing with British imperial policy as well as West Indian affairs.' Economic History Review

`Green gives a rounded picture of the British West Indies as a whole in a highly significant period ... because Green writes with distinction, the book is a pleasure to read. It is certainly obligatory reading for all students of British Carribbean history.' English Historical Review

`Within its genre ... this is an outstanding work.' American Historical Review

HASH(0x9dfba828) out of 5 stars INSIGHTFUL July 2 2001
By Stefan Simmons - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I used this book for GCE History Exam and it proved to be one of the most worthwhile books on West Indian History that I have ever come across, save Columbus to Castro by Eric Williams.
This book had amazing quotes and references that will surely help you in acheiving that "A" you are looking for.
It sure did help me.
