Michael O’Neal’s new Slavery, Smallholding and Tourism Examines the British Virgin Islands with Anthropology and History

Explores the political economy of development in the BVI — from plantations, through a smallholding economy, to the rise of tourism. The demise of plantations ushered in a century of imperial disinterest, then a new “monocrop” — tourism — became ascendant. Using an historical and anthropological approach, O’Neal shows how later reliance on tourism and other dependent industries affects many BVIslanders — called the “Belongers” — in ways that echo their historical and economic heritage.
NEW IN PAPERBACK, HARDCOVER, and multiple eBOOK FORMATS.
