A History of the Turks & Caicos Islands
The Turks & Caicos Islands is an archipelago of half a dozen populated islands and numerous other islets and cays located just to the south of the Bahamas chain of islands. One of the few remaining British Overseas Territories, its history is a patchwork of indigenous settlement, alleged first point of New World contact by Christopher Columbus, colonial rule, the slavery era, and constitutional multi-party government.
A History of the Turks & Caicos Islands examines the nature of all these, and other aspects of the Turks & Caicos identity.
The book is divided into three parts:
- I. The Environment and Natural Resources of the Turks & Caicos Islands
- II. Past Social and Political History of the Turks & Caicos Islands
- III: The Contemporary Social and Political History of the Turks & Caicos Islands
