Overview

Martinique is one of the Lesser Antilles, the island arc that separates the Caribbean Sea from the Atlantic Ocean.

An independence movement has never really galvanized Martinicans and in a referendum held in 1946 the islanders voted overwhelmingly in favour of departmental status and rejected a more autonomous alternative. This volume is the only available resource of its kind.
