Acclaimed Caribbean expert John Gilmore gives an overview of the region and the complex historical forces that have shaped its extraordinary diversity and creativity. He examines the legacy of slavery and exploitation, reggae as cultural phenomenon and growth industry, the impact of Derek Walcott, sugar and cricket, volcanoes and the environment, Creole literature, the Anglican faith, and much more in this engaging volume.
