The second edition of this island history has been completely revised and brought up to date. It describes the physical features, the Amerindian culture, European settlement and colonization. The bulk of this exciting story is concerned with the period from the seventeenth century to the present day. Montserrat's economic history, based first on sugar, then on cotton, limes and other products, is analysed, together with social developments from slavery to emancipation and modern politics and social patterns. This is a cultural history too, and the island's character and charm are communicated.
