The Caribbean, a region of spectacular natural beauty, has a turbulent history of colonialism, slavery and resistance in which people from all continents have played their part. Described by Christopher Columbus as an earthly paradise, the Caribbean has long enticed foreigners with its promise of wealth. From the gold-seeking exploits of the Spanish conquistadors to modern-day tourist cruises, the islands have exerted a fascination on generations of visitors. Tracing the islands' path from slavery to revolution and independence, "A Traveller's History of the Caribbean" looks at the history of nations as different as Cuba, Jamaica and Haiti, explaining their diversity and their common experiences. It reveals a region in which a tumultuous past has created a culturally vibrant and intriguing present.
