Land speculation and hotel developers in Bahamas, BVI, Caymans

Dear list members,

I'm wondering if anyone can point me to literature/research on the history of land speculation and hotel development in the Caribbean in the 1950s-1970s. I'm particularly interested in the Bahamas, Cayman Islands, St. Kitts and Nevis, BVI, Antigua and Barbuda, and Turks and Caicos. My own research seems to indicate strong connections between the simultaneous real estate and property boom in the US sunbelt and Florida in particular, so any links with sunbelt developers would be especially interesting.


Please feel free to respond off-list:


Many thanks,

Vanessa Ogle
