The history of Trinidad begins with a delusion: the belief that somewhere nearby on the South American mainland lay El Dorado, the mythical kingdom of gold. In this extraordinary and often gripping book, V. S. Naipaul–himself a native of Trinidad–shows how that delusion drew a small island into the vortex of world events, making it the object of Spanish and English colonial designs and a mecca for treasure-seekers, slave-traders, and revolutionaries. Amid massacres and poisonings, plunder and multinational intrigue, two themes emerge: the grinding down of the Aborigines during the long rivalries of the El Dorado quest and, two hundred years later, the man-made horror of slavery. An accumulation of casual, awful detail takes us as close as we can get to day-to-day life in the slave colony, where, in spite of various titles of nobility, only an opportunistic, near-lawless community exists, always fearful of slave suicide or poison, of African sorcery and revolt. Naipaul tells this labyrinthine story with assurance, withering irony, and lively sympathy. The result is historical writing at its highest level.… (més)

An very interesting account of the history of Trinidad starting with it's conquest by the Spanish who thought it to be the land of El Dorado. One wonders what course the history of Latin America would have taken had the moors not left Spain. Obviously not having learnt their lessons as the colonized, they decided to be twice as harsh as colonizers, imposing a very harsh slavery influenced pecking order. International bandits like Pizarro, cortez and their equally vile english counterpart Walter Raleigh paved the way for the colonization, subjugation and ultimately the demise of entire races.

A highly detailed and dramatic history of Trinidad and Venezuela from the beginnings of European colonialism through the dynamics of the era of slavery, and finishing with the drab ending that abolition brought. Naipaul illuminates the horrors and every-day brutality of slave life but also shows the absurd convolutions denial of the same brought to this Caribbean society and frequently transmitted back to the colonial nations.
