Overview

St. Lucia, with its amalgam of French and English traditions, has a rich culture and history. The island changed colonial masters many times during the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries and, although English has been the official language for nearly 200 years, French Creole is still widely spoken. Over the years the country has been characterized by a boom and bust economy, in which military bases, both British and American, have provided welcome employment for short periods of time. Since the early 1970s, however, tourism has expanded rapidly, bringing great benefits to the national economy. All aspects of the history, the environment, and the economic, social and political development of St. Lucia are covered in this volume, as are its varied peoples and cultures.
