Chapter Nine. Afterword: Lasting Impressions
This final chapter shows the continuities of life on Barbados between the mid-17th century and the early 19th century, and in the process offers a reminder of the need to revise our interpretation of these colonial planters. They were more than brutal and reckless fortune seekers. Besides achieving great wealth, these settlers sought to live in a society that resembled, as far as a tropical slave society would permit, the England they had left behind.
