A History of Religions in the Caribbean
"All the major religions of the world are found in the Caribbean as well as some indigenous outgrowths of these faiths. In A History of Religions in the Caribbean, Dr. Bisnauth ranges from the vanished beliefs of the Caribs and Arawaks to the Rastafarianism of today. He shows how each religion arrived and developed in the Caribbean area, culminating in the remarkable degree of mutual tolerance which now exists there." -- Cover.
