The islands and seascapes gracing the Caribbean Sea have long been areas of interest and research for geographers and other scholars from around the world. The lands and waters of the Caribbean region have stimulated an extensive body of research and writing across the many fields of geography. This book collects, organizes, and presents as many of these scholarly publications as possible to aid in the teaching, study, and further scholarship of the geography of this area. Chapters are organized into the following categories: general works, cultural and social geography, economic geography, historical geography, physical geography, political geography, and urban geography. The types of publications noted include atlases, books, book chapters, articles, master's theses, and doctoral dissertations. Entries in each chapter are arranged alphabetically by author's last name. Where there is more than one publication per author, the earliest is listed first, and the rest are listed chronologically after the first entry. This volume is a convenient and useful collection of existing references on the geography of the Caribbean region that can assist teachers and students in both the study and research of the area.
Thomas A. Rumney, now retired, was professor of Geography at Plattsburgh State University. He is the author of The Study of Agricultural Geography (Scarecrow, 2005) and Canadian Geography: A Scholarly Bibliography (2010).
