The Bahamas Handbook is the most comprehensive book available, anywhere, on doing business in The Bahamas, and a highly entertaining and informative guide to the history, culture and people of the islands.
In this 41st edition, read about those raging devils in paradise, hurricanes; the volunteers who make The Bahamas work; why e-commerce is poised to become the “third pillar” of the economy; construction projects in New Providence and the Out Islands; and how tall tales grew up around a tiny island in the Exumas.

Learn how one Governor’s wife gave orphaned children a place to call home and made a lasting impact on literacy; the new take on and old message in a bottle; or how tombstones speak volumes about the past. Find out what lures marine scientists to our pristine waters. Discover why changes in temperature could affect the islands.

On a more practical side, government listings provide the most up-to-date information on the people in power, from Members of Parliament, the Senate and Cabinet to public service officials.

For all your other questions, turn to the A-Z blue pages, concise information on everything from accommodations and air service to hospitals, investment incentives and wildlife preserves.
