Product Description

The Social History of Belize is marked by conflict, between the British soldiers and the Maya, masters and slaves, capitalists and workers, the colonial administration and the Belizean people. Belize shares many features with other parts of the Caribbean and Central America, including a long history of colonialism and slavery, a dependant economy in which the ownership of land is highly concentrated, and a population which is largely poor. In this collection of essays, written over a period of several years, Professor Bolland focuses on some of the most important topics in the history of the people of Belize, during three centuries of colonialism. The sociological perspective of this highly qualified scholar illuminates the historical origins and colonial legacies of present day Belize, both for their distinctiveness and for what they share with other parts of the region. This revised collection of essays, in the words of Professor Verene Shepherd, will now take its place on the shelves of scholars of Caribbean history.
