The study of business history as a distinct discipline is well established in many places but relatively neglected in the anglophone Caribbean. West Indian Business History: Enterprise and Entrepreneurship locates the regional history of business within the scope of Caribbean/Atlantic world economic history, placing it within the broader context of business history. As well as providing the foundation text for courses in West Indian business history, this volume is valuable to students of other areas of Caribbean history, wherever they may be enrolled, and also to Caribbean business studies students.

The essays included in this collection bring together a selection of work in West Indian business history, some first published several decades ago. The essays are intended to provide an introduction to the state of the field and illustrate the ways in which business history connects with other themes in Caribbean history. They offer examples of the varieties of ways in which business history can be researched and written, and of the range of subjects that can be studied.
