Ebert Lecture 11 - 1 - Caribbean and Colonial Peripheries  English, Dutch and French activity in the New World Heavily focused on the Caribbean, not North America.  North American colonies considered peripheral. Richest areas are the Caribbean. Two most successful groups are the English (Jamaica, Barbados) and the French (Martinique, San  Domingue). The Dutch run provisioning colonies (Curacao) The Wild Coast and Central America French, Dutch and English also develop a presence on the Atlantic coasts of the mainland: Belize and  the Guyanas. These economies are essentially Caribbean. The Caribbean economies Adopt the Brazilian plantation model. Heavily dependent on slavery. Leads to huge African influence on the cultures of these regions. Less racially mixed (but there is some mixing). Conflict in the Caribbean Other European powers gain a foothold in the Caribbean because Spain does not have the resources to  hold on to all of it. Subsequently, there are many wars fought over Caribbean possessions among the major European  powers.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
