Free read ✓ eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB ò Jan Rogozinski Summary Å A Brief History of the Caribbean From the Arawak and the Carib to the Present 107 Jan Rogozinski ò 7 Free read Ten history revised and updated with new chapters that reflect the islands' most recent social economic and political developments is a work of impeccable scholarship Featuring maps charts tables and photographs it remains the ideal guide to the region and its peopl. The great German statesman Otto von Bismarck once said that it was best not to know how one s laws and one s sausages were made The same is true of places that one enjoys visiting The Caribbean of course is an area that makes a great deal of its contemporary income from tourism and that tends to reuire being polite to traveling Americans and Europeans and others in the hope that they will spend plenty of money in one s country and have nice things to say Sometimes that means having available discreet places to keep one s money and ensuring tranuility in domestic politics so as to avoid scaring those whose dollars and euros ensure the well being of the economy That said the Caribbean has had a very dark history involving centuries of slavery and a distinct unwillingness on the part of freed slaves and in many cases their descendants to engage in useful labor because such labor was viewed as oppression and not as the way out of poverty Indeed the Caribbean has only been profitable when people have served others which does not always make for the most enjoyable historyThis particular book is about 300 pages long and it is divided into five parts and eighteen chapters The author begins this book with a list of tables and a preface After that the author discusses the Caribbean under Spanish rule I which chapters on the enduring environment and the first islanders namely the Arawak and Carib 1 the discovery of the islands by Columbus 2 the fight of pirates for Spanish gold 3 and Spain s Caribbean colonies 4 Then the author discusses the imperialism of Northern Europeans in the Caribbean II with chapters on the Dutch empire 5 the settlement of the Lesser Antilles 6 the buccaneers of Jamaica Saint Domingue and the Bahamas 7 and war and piracy from 1665 1720 8 After that the author discusses the sugar empire built on slavery III with chapters on the rise of sugar planting 9 the world of the slaves 10 the struggle for control between France and England 11 and runaways and rebels 12 The author turns to discuss abolition of slavery and the challenges of freedom IV with chapters on the British colonies 13 the fight for freedom of the Spanish islands 14 and Hispaniola and the Leeward Islands 15 The last part of the book then looks at poverty and progress in the Caribbean islands since 1914 V with chapters on the US and its relationship to the independent nations of the Caribbean 16 the gaining of independence of the islands 17 and the Commonwealth Caribbean since independence 18 after which there are maps notes suggestions for future reading photo credits and an indexAs has been the case in many books I have read about the Caribbean and its history this book spends too much time and effort writing about the political leaders of the contemporary Caribbean It is not surprising when one sees the sort of protest politics and leftist bent of many Caribbean regimes as well as the long adoption of suatting and insecurity of property rights that one can find in such areas that the Caribbean has struggled to have secure economies Throughout the history of the Caribbean development has been directed to external rather than internal purposes and the results have been lamentable and predictable with a false dilemma between socialist and crony capitalist projects to ensure domestic peace through excessive spending and dependence on external trade with cash crops or oil in the case of Trinidad in order to provide for a favorable balance of trade to pay for all of the necessities that the islands have been unable to provide for themselves Although the Caribbean is a lovely area it has seemingly been unable to escape from the trap of being dominated by others who seek it as a pleasant place to visit a market for goods and as the source of cash crops and not much else
