About the Author:

James Ferguson is a former researcher with the Latin America Bureau, London and is the author of several books on Caribbean countries.

Review:

"An excellent series of brief histories."

"Exceptional... Ferguson's in-depth guide to the Caribbean - from the arrival of its indigenous races to the political climate of the region in its current state - is a necessity for the tourist whose tastes are broader than pink sands... An excellent portrait of the Caribbean. A Traveller's History of the Caribbean will be equally meaningful for both the student and the traveler."

"Best travel series of the year... The best tourists are well-informed tourists... To be familiar with a country's history at a relatively deep level only enhances the tourist experience. To that end the titles in the Traveller's History Series offer sprightly and accurate historical portraits of countries and regions that are often tourist destinations... It cannot be stressed enough that the more prepared the tourist is, the better the trip will be."
