4. Dispossessed Lives: Enslaved Women, Violence, and the Archive (Early American Studies)
Author: by Marisa J. Fuentes
Published at: University of Pennsylvania Press; Illustrated edition (March 12, 2018)
In the eighteenth century, Bridgetown, Barbados, was heavily populated by both enslaved and free women.Marisa J. Fuentes creates a portrait of urban Caribbean slavery in this colonial town from the perspective of these women whose stories appear only briefly in historical records.
Fuentes takes us through the streets of Bridgetown with an enslaved runaway; inside a brothel run by a freed woman of color; in the midst of a white urban household in sexual chaos; to the gallows where enslaved people were executed; and within violent scenes of enslaved women’s punishments.
In the process, Fuentes interrogates the archive and its historical production to expose the ongoing effects of white colonial power that constrain what can be known about these women. Combining fragmentary sources with interdisciplinary methodologies that include black feminist theory and critical studies of history and slavery, Dispossessed Lives demonstrates how the construction of the archive marked enslaved women’s bodies, in life and in death.

7. A True and Exact History of the Island of Barbados (Hackett Classics)
Author: by Richard Ligon
Published at: Hackett Publishing Company, Inc.; 10/18/11 edition (September 12, 2011)
Ligon’s True and Exact History of the Island of Barbados is the most significant book-length English text written about the Caribbean in the seventeenth century. [It] allows one to see the contested process behind the making of the Caribbean sugar/African slavery complex.
Kupperman is one of the leading scholars of the early modern Atlantic world…. I cannot think of any scholar better prepared to write an Introduction that places Ligon, his text, and Barbados in an Atlantic historical context. The Introduction is quite thorough, readable, and accurate; the notes [are] exemplary!

8. The Black Carib Wars: Freedom, Survival, and the Making of the Garifuna (Caribbean Studies Series)
Author: by Christopher Taylor
Published at: University Press of Mississippi/Signal Books, Ltd.; Reprint edition (May 5, 2016)
In The Black Carib Wars, Christopher Taylor offers the most thoroughly researched history of the struggle of the Garifuna people to preserve their freedom on the island of St. Vincent. Today, thousands of Garifuna people live in Honduras, Belize, Guatemala, Nicaragua and the United States, preserving their unique culture and speaking a language that directly descends from that spoken in the Caribbean at the time of Columbus.
All trace their origins back to St. Vincent where their ancestors were native Carib Indians and shipwrecked or runaway West African slaveshence the name by which they were known to French and British colonialists: Black Caribs. In the 1600s they encountered Europeans as adversaries and allies.
But from the early 1700s, white people, particularly the French, began to settle on St. Vincent. The treaty of Paris in 1763 handed the island to the British who wanted the Black Caribs’ land to grow sugar. Conflict was inevitable, and in a series of bloody wars punctuated by uneasy peace the Black Caribs took on the might of the British Empire.
9. Final Passages: The Intercolonial Slave Trade of British America, 1619-1807 (Published by the Omohundro Institute of Early American History and Culture and the University of North Carolina Press)
Author: by Gregory E. O'Malley
Published at: University of North Carolina Press; Illustrated edition (August 1, 2016)
This work explores a neglected aspect of the forced migration of African laborers to the Americas. Hundreds of thousands of captive Africans continued their journeys after the Middle Passage across the Atlantic. Colonial merchants purchased and then transshipped many of these captives to other colonies for resale.
Not only did this trade increase death rates and the social and cultural isolation of Africans; it also fed the expansion of British slavery and trafficking of captives to foreign empires, contributing to Britain’s preeminence in the transatlantic slave trade by the mid-eighteenth century.
The pursuit of profits from exploiting enslaved people as commodities facilitated exchanges across borders, loosening mercantile restrictions and expanding capitalist networks. Drawing on a database of over seven thousand intercolonial slave trading voyages compiled from port records, newspapers, and merchant accounts, O’Malley identifies and quantifies the major routes of this intercolonial slave trade.
10. An Empire Divided: The American Revolution and the British Caribbean (Early American Studies)
Author: by Andrew Jackson O'Shaughnessy
Published at: University of Pennsylvania Press; Illustrated edition (July 18, 2000)
There were 26not 13British colonies in America in 1776. Of these, the six colonies in the CaribbeanJamaica, Barbados, the Leeward Islands, Grenada and Tobago, St. Vincent; and Dominicawere among the wealthiest. These island colonies were closely related to the mainland by social ties and tightly connected by trade.
In a period when most British colonists in North America lived less than 200 miles inland and the major cities were all situated along the coast, the ocean often acted as a highway between islands and mainland rather than a barrier.
The plantation system of the islands was so similar to that of the southern mainland colonies that these regions had more in common with each other, some historians argue, than either had with New England. Political developments in all the colonies moved along parallel tracks, with elected assemblies in the Caribbean, like their mainland counterparts, seeking to increase their authority at the expense of colonial executives.
Yet when revolution came, the majority of the white island colonists did not side with their compatriots on the mainland. A major contribution to the history of the American Revolution, An Empire Divided traces a split in the politics of the mainland and island colonies after the Stamp Act Crisis of 1765-66, when the colonists on the islands chose not to emulate the resistance of the patriots on the mainland.
11. Sugar in the Blood: A Family's Story of Slavery and Empire
Author: by Andrea Stuart
Published at: Vintage; Illustrated edition (October 8, 2013)
In the late 1630s, lured by the promise of the New World, Andrea Stuart’s earliest known maternal ancestor, George Ashby, set sail from England to settle in Barbados. He fell into the life of a sugar plantation owner by mere chance, but by the time he harvested his first crop, a revolution was fully under way: the farming of sugar cane, and the swiftly increasing demands for sugar worldwide, would not only lift George Ashby from abject poverty and shape the lives of his descendants, but it would also bind together ambitious white entrepreneurs and enslaved black workers in a strangling embrace.
Stuart uses her own family storyfrom the seventeenth century through the presentas the pivot for this epic tale of migration, settlement, survival, slavery and the making of the Americas. As it grew, the sugar trade enriched Europe as never before, financing the Industrial Revolution and fuelling the Enlightenment.
And, as well, it became the basis of many economies in South America, played an important part in the evolution of the United States as a world power and transformed the Caribbean into an archipelago of riches. But this sweet and hugely profitable tradewhite gold, as it was knownhad profoundly less palatable consequences in its precipitation of the enslavement of Africans to work the fields on the islands and, ultimately, throughout the American continents.
12. Slave Law and the Politics of Resistance in the Early Atlantic World
Author: by Edward B. Rugemer
Published at: Harvard University Press (November 12, 2018)
Winner of the Jerry H. Bentley Book Prize, World History AssociationThe success of the English colony of Barbados in the seventeenth century, with its lucrative sugar plantations and enslaved African labor, spawned the slave societies of Jamaica in the western Caribbean and South Carolina on the American mainland.
These became the most prosperous slave economies in the Anglo-American Atlantic, despite the rise of enlightened ideas of liberty and human dignity. Slave Law and the Politics of Resistance in the Early Atlantic World reveals the political dynamic between slave resistance and slaveholders’ power that marked the evolution of these societies.
Edward Rugemer shows how this struggle led to the abolition of slavery through a law of British Parliament in one case and through violent civil war in the other. In both Jamaica and South Carolina, a draconian system of laws and enforcement allowed slave masters to maintain control over the people they enslaved, despite resistance and recurrent slave revolts.
13. Freedom Roots: Histories from the Caribbean
Author: by Laurent Dubois
University of North Carolina Press (December 16, 2019)
To tell the history of the Caribbean is to tell the history of the world,” write Laurent Dubois and Richard Lee Turits. In this powerful and expansive story of the vast archipelago, Dubois and Turits chronicle how the Caribbean has been at the heart of modern contests between slavery and freedom, racism and equality, and empire and independence.
From the emergence of racial slavery and European colonialism in the early sixteenth century to U.S. Annexations and military occupations in the twentieth, systems of exploitation and imperial control have haunted the region. Yet the Caribbean is also where empires have been overthrown, slavery was first defeated, and the most dramatic revolutions triumphed.
Caribbean peoples have never stopped imagining and pursuing new forms of liberty. Dubois and Turits reveal how the region’s most vital transformations have been ignited in the conflicts over competing visions of land. While the powerful sought a Caribbean awash in plantations for the benefit of the few, countless others anchored their quest for freedom in small-farming and counter-plantation economies, at times succeeding against all odds.

Author: by Hilary McD. Beckles
Published at: Cambridge University Press; 2nd edition (November 16, 2006)
Highly acclaimed when it first appeared in 1990, this general history of Barbados traces the events and ideas that have shaped the collaborative experience of all the islands inhabitants.

He presents new insights and analyses key events in a lucid and provocative style which will appeal to all those who have an interest in the island’s past and present.
