I read this book on the beach in the Caribbean and it was a terrific overview of the nations and cultures that make up that part of the world. The section on the truth behind the myth of Bob Marley was especially interesting and too often neglected. All of Kurlansky's books are fantastic - let this one lead you to some of the other topics and places he has explored.

If I could give this book 10 stars I would.

Since this book was published in 1992, one of the author's first, it is somewhat outdated. Nonetheless, the author demonstrates deep and extensive knowledge of the area. The picture painted of the exploitation and current defficulties of this area are presented clearly. For anyone interested in one or all of the islands, this book will provide a valuable resource.

This is a study of the culture of the Caribbean, not its history.

This is an interesting read (Cultural anthropology was my favorite subject in college), but don't get this book if you want to learn about the history of the islands. Bits and pieces of history serve as background material for modern events.

Finally, the text is 15 years old, and some sections could use updating.
