Full description of the book The Migration of Peoples from the Caribbean to the Bahamas:"Creatively drawing on documentary sources and oral histories, Tinker offers invaluable insights into the social, political, and economic forces that have helped shape the history of West Indian migrations to the Bahamas--a country that has often been overlooked in Caribbean migration studies.""--"Frederick H. Smith, author of "Caribbean Rum"Although the Bahamas is geographically part of the West Indies, its population has consistently rejected attempts to link Bahamian national identity to the histories of its poorer Caribbean neighbors. The result of this attitude has been that the impact of Barbadians, Guyanese, Haitians, Jamaicans, and Turks and Caicos islanders PDF living in the Bahamas has remained virtually unstudied.In this timely volume, Keith Tinker explores the flow of peoples to and from the Bahamas and assesses the impact of various migrant groups on the character of the islands society and identity. He analyzes the phenomenon of "West Indian elitism" and reveals an intriguing picture of how immigrants--both documented and undocumented--have shaped the Bahamas from the pre-Columbian period to the present.The result is the most complete and comprehensive study of migration "to" the Bahamas, a work that reminds us that Caribbean migration is about more than just the ePub people who leave the islands for the continents of North America and Europe."
