This book is a major new textbook survey that explains how the region's present geography is intimately tied to the past. Professor Richardson examines this colonization and recolonization of the Caribbean during the past half millennium, portraying a region victimized by natural hazard, soil erosion, introduced overpopulation, and gunboat diplomacy.
