Summary

Designed as a lively encyclopedia, this includes all the elements that constitute the heritage of modern Bahamians: historical, geographical, economic, political, social and cultural. Key events, institutions, customs and personalities are not just described but evaluated. Yet, as even a dipping will show, this A-Z is far from being entirely strait-laced. Apart from heroes and high-fliers there are plenty of eccentrics and even a few villains. Compiled by the premier historian of "The Bahamas" and four years in the making, this sparkling reference book is the distillation of research and analysis spread over half a century. Printed in colour and beautifully illustrated, it is aimed at both fact-seekers and browsers. It will interest and profit Bahamians, visitors and armchair travellers alike."Macmillan Caribbean A-Zs" are a comprehensive series of reference books that provide an invaluable and entertaining source of information to the countries that comprise the Caribbean region. Highly illustrated and in full-colour throughout, they are a unique 'one-stop' resource to the cultural heritage of a fascinating and richly diverse part of the world.
