Grenada: A History of its People

Author(s): Beverley A. Steele

Grenada: A History of its People blends up-to-date scholarship from primary sources with fascinating detail of its people and their often turbulent struggle for survival. It provides a detailed chronological historical analysis but focuses especially on the story and everyday lives of its inhabitants from the earliest days of settlement by the Arawaks to the overthrow of revolutionary Prime Minister, Maurice Bishop, in 1981 and beyond. The author combines her knowledge and understanding of the island and its people with her considerable narrative skills to produce a highly readable, informative and entertaining overview of Grenada’s remarkable history.
