A Continent of Islands PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

A Continent of Islands free pdf In this richly detailed portrait of the individual countries and peoples of the Caribbean, Mark Kurlansky brings to life a society and culture often kept hidden from foreigners--the arts, history, politics, and economics of the region, as well as the vivid day-to-day lives of its citizens. From the Newyoriccans of Levittown, Puerto Rico- to the state-salaried popular musicians of Cuba- to the practitioners of good political hurricanemanship (who know how to stretch statistics to bring in relief funds), "A Continent of Islands" paints portraits that will prove equally fascinating to tourists who know the Caribbean only as a string of beach resorts, and to readers curious about U.S. efforts to influence its neighbors.
