Volume VI of General History of the Caribbean looks at the ways historians have written the history of the region depending upon their methods of interpretation and differing styles of communicating their findings. The linguistic diversity of the region would require the ideal historian to be proficient in all its languages. However, since in general proficiency is limited to two or three languages at most, the inability of the historian to identify and interrogate relevant material scattered in a variety of depositories in the Caribbean, the United States, Europe, Africa, India and China has affected the ways in which the history of the region has been written.
