The 43rd edition of the Bahamas Handbook, as always, highly entertaining and informative, is the most comprehensive book available on investing, doing business, living or travelling in The Bahamas.

In this volume, learn how Sir Etienne Dupuch changed the social landscape of The Bahamas by bringing about racial equality. Find out the truth about Columbus’ 1492 landfall. Stroll down historic West Street and get to know the Greek community that thrived there. Discover the role The Bahamas played in the largest successful slave uprising in US history and find out what makes Abaco different from the other islands of The Bahamas.

Look into the future of the financial services sector operating in a new regulatory environment. Examine the implications of the Free Trade Area of the Americas. Meet the Bacardi family, rum makers who moved their Cuban company to The Bahamas in the 1960s; Li Ka-shing, the Hong –Kong billionaire who has brought prosperity to Grand Bahama; and John Roberts, the Freeporter whose life story reads like an adventure novel.

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. And of course, the A-Z blue pages offer concise information on everything from accommodations and investment incentives to nature and wildlife preserves.

All this and much more awaits you in the 2003 Bahamas Handbook.
