Empire's Crossroads

A History of the Caribbean From Columbus to the Present Day

Carrie Gibson

In this compelling history Carrie Gibson unfolds the complex story of the Caribbean from Columbus' first landing on the island he named San Salvador to today's islands – largely independent, but often still in thrall to Europe and America's insatiable desire for tropical luxuries. For Gibson, the heart of that story is 'the genius of adaptation' – to diaspora, disease, slavery, racism, earthquake, poverty and tourism – that enabled the West Indies to survive a clash of worlds. Off-mint.
