Summary

Offering a rare pan-Caribbean perspective on a region that has moved from the very center of the western world to its periphery,The Caribbean: The Genesis of a Fragmented Nationalismjourneys through five centuries of economic and social development, emphasizing such topics as the slave-run plantation economy, the changes in political control over the centuries, the impact of the United States, and the effects of Castro's Cuban revolution on the area.
