Natalie A Zacek's study is the first history of the federated colony of the Leeward Islands - Antigua, Montserrat, Nevis and St Kitts - to cover all four islands in the period from their independence from Barbados in 1670 to the outbreak of the American Revolution. Discussing subjects including religious diversity, sexuality and social control, Zacek examines the planters' attempts to establish recognizably English societies in tropical islands with economies based on plantation agriculture and African slavery.
