Abstract

This book presents a systematic and synthetic discussion of the geography of the Caribbean, also paying due attention to its history. Among 25 double-page, full-colour maps, there are displays on environmental hazards and natural disasters, post-colonial pathways to political independence, tax havens and illegal trafficking, and universities and information technology networks. A detailed text is supported by rigorous cartography in order to grasp the intricate mosaic of cultures and economic relations on the Caribbean islands, and to show their links with other parts of the world. A glossary and a bibliography complete the volume. - HC)
