Overview

This book examines Caribbean history from the first discovery by Europeans in Columbus's voyage to the New World to when the Caribbean became a pawn in the European struggle for empire and a victim of European steel, gunpowder and disease.
 
The Caribbean became a significant player in the developing trans-Atlantic economy as numerous plantations sprung across the region run by slave labor. Even after Emancipation, the after effects of servitude- poverty, exploitation and inequality- lead to protest and resistance to European colonial rule.
 
In the twentieth century, the United States largely replaced Europe as the dominant player in the area, and intervened when it perceived its regional interests were threatened.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Heuman has managed to write a history of the Caribbean that does justice to its enormous diversity. He has brought the history to life not only by including visual illustrations but also by providing quotes from primary sources. This and the 'suggestions for further reading', which include primary sources and the monthly list of new publications...make it a very student-friendly book."—Henrice Altink, Reviews in History
