MEDIA REVIEWS
Heuman's The Caribbean offers a clear, concise, and readable introduction to the history of the region. The book engages in broad historical synthesis illustrated with specific relevant examples. It provides a brief overview of political and economic context while delving more deeply into the social history of the Caribbean. * Marc McLeod, Associate Professor of History, Seattle University, USA *
In this timely revision of his excellent introduction to the study of Caribbean history, Gad Heuman builds on the qualities that made the first two editions so accessible to general readers and valuable in the classroom. Coherent narrative and succinct analyses remain hallmark characteristics as the author pushes the Caribbean story to the present, while drawing on exciting new scholarship to refine our understanding of the region's past. The Caribbean: A Brief History is designed to succeed with students like mine, and should be required reading for relevant courses. * Roderick A. McDonald, Professor of History, Rider University, USA *
In this thoroughly updated new edition of a popular text, the leading Caribbean historian, Gad Heuman, provides a lively and authoritative guide to the fascinating, complex and world-significant history of the Caribbean from 1492 to the present. * Trevor Burnard, Professor of American History and Head of School in the School of Historical and Philosophical Studies, University of Melbourne, Australia *
