Business in Bim: A Business History of Barbados 1900-2000

Price
156.60 BBD

This comprehensive survey, Business in BIM, chronicles the evolution of business in Barbados from the era when sugar cane cultivation and its processing dominated the economic, political and social life of the country through the present time. It examines the issues and challenges within the Barbadian business landscape, and highlights the contribution of Barbados businessmen and women to the development of various aspects of the business sector. 

In the colonial flurry of the first half of the 20th century, Barbadian businessmen fought against the pulling tide of 'King Sugar' to forge their own paths, and thus permanently altered the face of business in 'Bim'. Dr Henderson Carter's comprehensive survey, Business in BIM: A Business History of Barbados 1900-2000 chronicles the evolution of business in Barbados from the era when sugar cane cultivation and its processing dominated the economic, political and social life of the country through to the present time. The book shows how the decline of the sugar industry created opportunities for the emergence of a new merchant class which included among its members a significant number of Black business entrepreneurs. The successes of this new merchant class were etched into the facades of Swan and Roebuck Streets as tangible evidence of the industrial change that swept Barbados, and in the process created a prominent commercial centre that remains a vital part of the capital, Bridgetown, to this day. Dr Carter pays particular attention to the development and growth of Black businesses and analyses the factors that have accounted for their relatively short lifespan compared to white businesses which often survived across several generations. Through the personal profiles of the pioneering entrepreneurs the author puts a human face to the businesses they created and guided to success but oftentimes to failure as well. The role of government as a factor in the development of business enterprises in the post-independence period comes in for special focus particularly through an examination of the policies of Errol Barrow, Erskine Sandiford and more recently Owen Arthur. Business in Bim breaks new ground in the recording and analyzing of business history in the Caribbean. It will have immediate appeal for business practitioners whose enterprises remain viable and successful legacies of the early pioneering period and for many Barbadians who grew up to maturity alongside some of these companies. But beyond that, students of business and business history across the region will find this work a rich resource for case studies in Caribbean business history, entrepreneurship and government/private sector relationship.

Cane Reapers : Chinese Indentured immigrants in Guyana

Price
104.80 BBD

Cane Reapers is the story about the Chinese who were procured to replace the emancipated slaves on the sugar plantations of Guyana (then British Guiana). Between 1853 and 1879 a total of 13,541 indentured labourers arrived from China but by 1900 the resident Chinese population was down to 3,000. The tribulations and triumphs of the Chinese immigrants reveal human nature in times of hardship and alienation. In the process of assimilation into Western culture some unique names have evolved for Chinese families, creating both a mystery and a topic of fascination for their descendants and for genealogists.

Capital Ideas Evolving

Price
55.30 BBD

"A lot has happened in the financial markets since 1992, when Peter Bernstein wrote his seminal Capital Ideas. Happily, Peter has taken up his facile pen again to describe these changes, a virtual revolution in the practice of investing that relies heavily on complex mathematics, derivatives, hedging, and hyperactive trading. This fine and eminently readable book is unlikely to be surpassed as the definitive chronicle of a truly historic era."

Capitalism and Slavery Fifty Years Later: Eric Eustace Williams - A Reassessment of the Man and His Work

Price
195.25 BBD

Eric Williams' seminal work Capitalism and Slavery has received continued reassessment since publication in 1944. It must be considered one of the premier historical works of our time. Its major themes - the origins of slavery; the profitability of the slave trade and slavery; the decline of the British West Indies; and the economic motivation for emancipation - are still hotly debated. This book continues this process, however, it also explores less developed themes as well as new developments in Caribbean historiography. It also seeks to shed some insight on the issues that influenced Eric Williams and informed the purpose with which he wrote history. This reassessment celebrates a very important landmark in the book's history, fifty years since its original publication.
