Reviews
"The authors have provided a valuable resource with this, the first biographical dictionary to be dedicated entirely to Caribbeans and Caribbean Americans who have excelled in a variety of fields and have had an impact on the region....This text will serve as an inspiration to young Caribbeans who will now be able to read about a large number of role models. The fact that all these biographies can now be found under one cover highlights the impressive caliber of so many who hail from that region, also enhancing its inspirational value to this and future generations. This text should be in the reference section of all good libraries and should be added as a resource to reading lists in history, sociology, social studies, Caribbean studies, and literature classes."-Multicultural Review

"Few biographical reference sources cover specifically the diverse people of Caribbean origin. The authors supply biographical information for 167 highly regarded Caribbeans and Caribbean Americans in various fields....Recommended. General readers; lower-division undergraduates."-Choice
"Filling a unique niche in reference collections, these two- to three-page biographical sketches are arranged alphabetically and cover 167 caribbeans from all walks of life....this volume will be a good addition to high-school, public, and undergraduate reference collections."-Booklist/RBB
