Liberties Lost, like its companion volume, Freedoms Won, has been written by two of the Caribbean's leading historians, Professor Hilary Beckles and Professor Verene Shepherd. The book covers the history syllabus offered by the Caribbean Examinations Council, including the new Caribbean Advanced Proficiency syllabus in Caribbean/Atlantic history. It is of value to students and teachers engaged in the Cambridge A-Level syllabus on the post-emancipation history of the Caribbean, to college/university students participating in foundation courses in Caribbean history, as well as to the general reader seeking information on the history of the region. Topics covered in Liberties Lost include indigenous societies, Europe's Caribbean project; European settlement and rivalry; the Transatlantic trade in enslaved Africans; sugar and slavery; African culture and community life; revolt and resistance; and finally, Caribbean emancipation.
