West Indies Map 1987 Side 2
Item#: X NGC 111987b

A region of contrasts, the islands of the West Indies are both tropical paradise and lands marred by a dark history of slavery, greed, and suffering. Part of the "Making of America" series, this work represents Side Two of a two-map set published in November 1987 and features an abundance of historical information about this culturally diverse region. Two articles, "Searching for Columbus's Lost Colony: La Navidad" and "Haiti - Against All Odds," accompanied the two maps.

The 1987 West Indies map Side 2 features:
• A historical introduction
• The Spanish Caribbean map (1492-1625) which contains information on explorers' routes, convoy routes, colonies, exports, and more
• The Imperial Rivalries map (1625-1763) showing European possession of the islands, peak migration periods of various peoples, trade routes, points of conflict, and more
• A map of the region from 1763-1823 containing information on migrations, chief exports, the end of slavery in the islands, and more
• A map detailing the United States' involvement in the region from 1898-1945 which includes oil refineries and pipelines, US leased military bases, US naval bases, exports, tourism areas, liquor producing areas, and more
• Maps showing activities in the region from 1945 to present including information on the economy, production and export, population, and more
• Colorful illustrations
