The book puts Tobago's History into perspective against a background of European History. It references conflicts and how these led to the many times that Tobago changed hands among the leading states of Europe. This book places focus on Tobago as a Slave Colony, a Sugar, Producer and a haven for Pirates of the Caribbean. It covers the period of Tobago's annexation to Trinidad up to 1950. Tobago's Big Story is that a people who were brought to the island as chattel slaves are now owners of the island. Tobago's Big question is where are these people today and where are they going? This is the story that has to be followed. The story of Tobago is poignant and complicated. It is more than the result of a series of events. The island as entered the 21st century with a voice and status that was not readily predictable. But, at the dawn of this new century, the island and its people have entered facing many challenges, several of which are obvious; many which require perception; and some which fill the realm of speculation. This being so, contextual circumstances are destined to dictate the nature, course and outcome of these challenges.
