Review Comments:

"The author has provided an invaluable reference book, and as far as I know, the first really comprehensive insight into the British Caribbean business community" - Emeritus Fellow, Bill Kirkman MBE, University of Cambridge.

"Dr. Johnson's timely book on Caribbean entrepreneurship in Britain addresses an important, yet often neglected topic within the field of ethnic minority enterprise. With an admirable grasp of history, economics and enterprise, the author presents a detailed portrait of Caribbean business owners in a variety of contexts. This book is to be welcomed as a valuable addition to the academic and policy community" - Professor Monder Ram OBE, Director CREME Initiative, De Montfort University, England.

"This book makes an excellent reference resource since the author has dealt with a topic on which very little in known especially in mainstream literature" - Professor Sonny Nwankwo, University of East London.

"A scholary work that combines various disciplines such as commerce, culture, demography, geography, politics, sociology and technology located within a British Caribbean context" - The Roselle Antoine Foundation.

"Congrats to the author on such a timely and splendid work; it is needed to show the contribution of Caribbean people to the UK over a century" - Mahogany Arts Ltd
