Description

Canada's connection to the Caribbean is a long-standing one: sailing ships from Halifax plied the trade routes in the nineteenth century carrying cod and timber south and bringing back sugar and rum. Missionaries and bankers followed, and many of them stayed.

In recent years politics and business in the region have undergone drastic changes and most countries have gained formal independence. Canada has not always adapted well to these changes and is not necessarily regarded as a friendly country by many West Indians.

In this book, first published in 1977, Robert Chodos offers a broad-ranging exploration of Canada's Caribbean connection, combining a concern for the broad issues it entails with a perceptive reporter's eye for telling detail.
