The millions of African slaves who replaced the natives produced the rich cultural mix that now exists within the paradox of sunny tourist beaches and the plight of the Western Hemisphere\'s poorest people.

This encyclopedia goes deep beneath the veneer to show the origins in slavery of the modern African-based culture; the brief, cataclysmic destruction of the indigenous peoples; and the seven-millennium history of life in the Caribbean before Columbus.
