Description:

Marvin Hunts remarkable Among the Children of the Sun takes readers to an island nation that millions of people visit yearly, but few actually know much about. Bypassing the well-known resorts of Nassau and Freeport, he concentrates on life in the other islands of the Bahamasthe Family Islands. Hunt explores the geology of these islands; the racial, social and political history of the nation; its storied history as an eighteenth-century haven for pirates; its customs, its food and music; its religious traditions; and the challenges it faces as an emerging nation, in a lively narrative, reminiscent of Paul Theroux, that spans fifteen years of travel.

Richly detailed, full of lively encounters with people and places, Among the Children of the Sun does what no other book about the Bahamas has done: take readers beyond the name tags and smiling faces of those who service the tourist industry, into their real lives, conveying the triumphs and tragedies of ordinary people living in an extraordinary landscape. It is a work of self-discovery, too, as the author comes to terms with his own evolving life.

The Bahamas from Slavery to Servitude, 1783-1933

Description:

"A significant contribution to the history of the Caribbean and to the comparative study of slavery and transitions to free labor systems."--O. Nigel Bolland, Colgate University

"An extended and comprehensive history of the Bahamas. . . . Shifts the focus of interest from the islands elites to the common people . . . with special reference to the black population which has hitherto been largely ignored in historical writing."--Richard B. Sheridan, University of Kansas, Lawrence

In the only scholarly treatment of Bahamian socioeconomic history in the post-emancipation years, Howard Johnson begins by examining the last phase of slavery as one element in the foundation of later, and often more exploitative, labor systems. Looking at both urban and rural slave populations, Johnson discusses the systems of slave hire, apprenticeship, and indenture and highlights the ways in which the people of the Bahamas often exerted more autonomy and power as slaves than as a "free" people.
Following emancipation in 1838, an export economy based on cotton, salt, sponges, and pineapples spawned coercive credit and truck systems, which bolstered the dominance of a white mercantile elite that would exercise control until the early 1960s. Various government policies further perpetuated a "machinery of class slavery," making migration (primarily to Key West and, later, to Miami) one of the few escape routes available to the lower classes.
Throughout, Johnson relates historical developments in the Bahamas to those in neighboring Caribbean islands, Latin America, and the United States, making this an important sourcebook for all Caribbeanists. It will also be of interest to scholars of the historiography of slavery in the Americas and the transition from slavery to freedom or--in a post-emancipation system of domination like that of the Bahamas--from slavery to servitude.

Howard Johnson is associate professor in the Department of Black American Studies and History at the University of Delaware, editor of After the Crossing: Immigrants and Minorities in Caribbean Creole Society (1988), and author of The Bahamas in Slavery and Freedom (1991).
