Book of the Week – Makers of the Caribbean (James Ferguson)

Makers of the Caribbean
by James Ferguson

Makers of the Caribbean introduces young readers to the lives, ideas, exploits and achievements of a selection of personalities who in their individual styles have helped to ‘make’ the Caribbean we know today. Organized around ten selected themes, the book recognizes the contributions of Freedom Fighters, Politicians, Visionaries and Intellectuals, Writers and Performers, Artists, Musicians and Sports people from the English, French and Spanish-speaking islands of the Caribbean.

The book is written in a clear and accessible style and the text is enhanced by the inclusion of portraits and other photographs that will help put faces to what were previously, only names for many readers. A selected bibliography is also included to guide readers who will undoubtedly wish to learn more about their respective heroes.

This introductory biography is intended not only to inform and educate, but to inspire the young people of the region with positive role models seen through the lives, achievements, brilliance, and resilience of these ‘Makers of the Caribbean’.
