There is a surprisingly rich resource of books on the West Indies. Only a few books on the Caribbean are commonly found in bookshops but there are an enormous range of titles in existence. There is a fine online bibliography of West Indies books, mostly sorted by author, compiled by Don Mitchell at http://books.ai
Books are carefully described but if you have particular concerns please e mail enquires to me.
Post and packing is extra. Orders are packed carefully and covered by my insurance. Costs are kept to a minimum. Overseas orders are normally sent by airmail and orders for bulky items or multiple books can be sent very cheaply by M Bag Media mail, a heavily discounted airmail service.
