Macmillan Caribbean A-Z's 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. This second edition of the A-Z of Barbados is fully revised and updated by the original four authors - each a recognized authority in his own field. Every aspect of Barbadian history, geography, culture and society is covered: from flying fish to Gary Sobers; from chattel houses to rum shops and from the Landship to the six native types of lizard. The sources of local legends and folklore share the page with the story of rum and the origins of the name Bimshire, while the biographies of the great and the good jostle with the humorous stories of more colourful characters.
