Placing the roots of Caribbean dependency in a firm historical perspective, this study highlights the ways in which the region has been and continues to be a pawn in great power politics and economics. The past is both haunting and daunting, hampering the regions autonomous development. The author develops his argument by focusing on how politics, economics and race have shaped Caribbean history and contemporary life. Discussion of these themes include the Spanish-, French- and Dutch-speaking Caribbean islands as well.
