Description

Volume Two of this study examines the social developments of the Bahamas from 1834 to the turn of the 21st century. A product of the New Social History, it recounts adjustments to emancipation made by former masters and former slaves between 1843 and 1900, traces the process of modernization between 1900 and 1973, and concludes with a candid study of social change since 1973, current problems and an analysis of what makes the Bahamas and Bahamians distinctive in the world. The authors interweave broad historical narrative with details drawn from travellers' accounts, autobiographies, private letters, and reconstructed official dispatches and newspaper reports. Illustrated with photographs and original maps, this book is a useful national history.
