For one-semester courses on the History of the Caribbean and Peoples and Cultures of the Caribbean.

Caribbean History, by Tony Martin, is one of the most up-to-date college survey texts available on the history of the Caribbean.

This text favors a traditional, largely chronological approach to the study of Caribbean history; however, because it is impossible to be entirely chronological in the complex agglomeration of often disparate historical experiences that is the Caribbean, there are some thematic chapters within the broadly chronological framework. More Caribbean-centered than other surveys of the region, the text examines topics that are either completely absent or are only perfunctorily treated in other texts.
