'The Caribbean People' is a three-book 'History' series for Secondary schools. Tracing the origins and developments of the Caribbean region, Book 1 starts with Early Civilisation, Tribes and Settlers, followed by Colonisation and Plantations in Book 2. Book 3 looks at modern West Indian society, more recent history and current affairs.
The Caribbean People has been the best JS History course in and for the Caribbean for some time, as well as being an excellent read for the interested layman. This new edition takes account of the developments since 1995, such as for example the increased presence of the Lebanese. It includes a new chapter on Caribbean culture and more detail on Caribbean agriculture. There will be exercises to help students prepare for the School Based Assessment (SBA), now a core element of assessment at CXC, in which students have to complete a project involving extensive research.
