Key features include: * Many maps, diagrams, illustrations and colour photos throughout * Lively and direct style * A wide range of questions and activities at the end of each chapter designed both to test knowledge and to stimulate further enquiry and thought. * Varied and stimulating suggestions for follow-up activities at the end of each quarter. Book Two covers the history of the Caribbean from the arrival of Columbus, through the establishment of settlements by the Europeans, to the plantation system and slavery. The book ends with slave rebellions and emancipation movements. This new edition has been fully updated to give teachers and students the benefit of the latest historical findings.
