    Calypso, Voodoo, Sunshine, Communism, Reggae, Colonialism, The Slave Trade, Rum, Revolution, Industry and Tourism 100 years of the Caribbean image and identity is captured in this deluxe new hardback photography book. The image of the Caribbean is as much a creation of the outsider as it is the complex identity of its people a melting pot of races created out of the participants in the 400 year slave trade enforced Africans, indigenous Americans and their colonisers French, Spanish, German, Dutch, English. The identity of the Caribbean stands at this intersection of tourism, the detritus of the slave trade, colonialism and tropicality. The regions politics span a hot bed of ideas and radicalism from Castros Cuba, communist thorn in the side of North America, to the violent right-wing dictatorship of Haitis Papa Doc in the 1960s; from Manleys Jamaica in the 1970s to Eric Williams Trinidad in the 1960s. This book is a deluxe large format hardback book featuring 100s of fascinating and unique photographs that span one hundred years of Caribbean history, culture, industry and more as well as the subsequent diaspora of its people to America, England and elsewhere.
    The photographs show the many ways in which the region is portrayed from luscious and tropical backdrop of tourism and hedonism, to colonial outpost and revolutionary threat within North Americas own backyard.
