Reviews - What do customers think about History of the Virgin Islands?
Cant' believe that I'm the first to review this excellent book! Jun 29, 2006
I've read a number of works on the Caribbean and yes, nothing beats Eric William's seminal piece 'From Columbus to Castro'. However, this one by Dookhan is very good. I do wish the chronology was a little more consistent but nonetheless, the book is really informative and insightful. After reading this not only will you have a scholarly grasp of V.I. history but you will also see the origins of the deep rooted problems that still exist.
