TRINIDAD AND TOBAGO: Terrific and Tranquil

Product no.: HP149

3rd Edition

Trinidad and Tobago is one of the most cosmopolitan countries in the world. Since the arrival of Amerindian peoples more than ten thousand years ago, this twin-island, Caribbean nation has become a melting pot of different races, traditions, customs and religions.

European colonisers and settlers from Africa, India, China and the Middle East began arriving from the late 1400s. These disparate groups all played a part in influencing Trinidad and Tobago’s diverse and unique culture.
Birthplace of calypso music and the steel pan, and home to the world famous Trinidad Carnival, the nation boasts one of the most exclusive tourism destinations in the world – Tobago – and an emerging eco-tourism sector.

This is a lavishly illustrated book comprising more than 200 photographic images. It was published to commemorate the nation’s 50th anniversary of independence (2012).
