Very Good. 6" X 9" 359 Pages Indexed. A tight square book with some underlining and hi-lighting primarily to the first 41 pages. There is one instance of underlining in the index. Remaining pages are flawless. First published by University of North Carolina Press in 1972, this book presents a vivid portrait of English life in the Caribbean more than three centuries ago. Using a host of contemporary primary sources, the author traces the development of plantation slave society in the region. He examines sugar production techniques, the vicious character of the slave trade, the problems of adapting English ways to the tropics, and the appalling mortality rates for both blacks and whites that made these colonies the richest, but in human terms the least successful, in English America. This is a masterly analysis of the Caribbean plantation slave society, its lifestyles, ethnic relations, afflictions, and peculiarities. Also it is an account of the rise of the planter class in the West Indies. Dunn's work is social history, based on factual data.
