Summary: This text focuses on the contemporary economic, social, geographical, environmental and political realities of the Caribbean region. Historical aspects of the Caribbean, such as slavery, the plantation system and plantocracy are explored in order to explain the contemporary nature of, and challenges faced by, the Caribbean. The book is divided into three parts, dealing respectively with: the foundations of the Caribbean, rural and urban bases of the contemporary Cari morebbean, and global restructuring and the Caribbean: industry, tourism and politics.

This is a comprehensive tertiary level textbook aimed at students taking courses that involve consideration of the contemporary character of the Caribbean region. The book should be of value to undergraduates and postgraduates taking courses in geography, development studies, Black studies, social policy and social science, economics and politics, as well as more generally in the social sciences.


  • Stresses the contemporary nature of the Caribbean as the primary focus, but covers its foundations in historical processes
  • Reflecting the topic, the text is well-illustrated by means of maps, figures, graphics and photographs
  • Boxed case studies are presented in each chapter, principally, but not exclusively, in order to provide country or region specific case studies. For example, 'Promoting Export-oriented manufacturing: the example of St Lucia's National Development Corporation', 'Grenada, from "not for sale" to "for sale": US opposition to its socialist experiment; 'Patterns of settlement and economic activity in Guyana', 'urbanization and the structure of San Juan, Puerto Rico', 'Housing in Cuba: the contribution of the Microbrigade System. less
