Synopsis

History of Jamaica by Carlysle De Brosse Black, Clinton V. Black

History of Jamaica has been revised to bring the account of the island's history up to date. Many maps and photographs have also been added. This edition of the authoritative History of Jamaica covers the whole of the history of the island from the arrival of the Arawaks a thousand years ago until the present day. That thousand year period has also seen the arrival of the Spaniards and the extermination of the Amerindians, the coming of the British and the introduction of slavery, the fight for freedom and the achievement of Independence. This story, with its many facets: the Buccaneers, the Maroons, the National Heroes and others, is told by the Government Archivist in a flowing narrative which is backed by a knowledge based on the closest contact with original documants.
