Format: Paperback
"This literary mastrepiece by Donald McCartney should be a must read for secondary and tertiary level learners. Indeed it ought to be on the shelf of every Bahamian Educational Institution and home. When the question is asked of generations of Bahamians yet unborn "what meanest these stones?" They need only read this book and gain a wealth of knowledge at the flip of its pages. The distinguished author has delineated an all-inclusive description of our political history and way of life. As it has been often said, "to know where we are going we must first know where we came from." He has certainly started us on this journey."
Doswell C. Coakley, Ph.D., FCICA, President and CEL of JTR & Associates Limited and former Deputy Director and Director of Bahamas Immigration.

Format: Paperback
This book offers an excellent and easy to read portrayal of the history of those factors which influence the cultural and political develpoment of the Bahamas. It is a must read for all Bahamians and persons with connections and roots in the Bahamas. I recomend that anyone who is interested in migrating to or doing business in the Bahamas read this book. As a Bahamian abroad, I strongly recomend that all Bahamians (particularly youmg Bahamians)coming abroad to study have a copy of this book as a part of their reading materials. Additionally, Bahamian parents should ensure that every child in their homes have a copy of this book. I do hope that the Bahamian government deemit necessary to place copies of this book in every school in the Bahamas.

Format: Paperback
The essays, "Who We Are" and "A Brief Political History of the Bahamas..." are eccellent productions by Donald M. McCartney, Esq. The writre's treatment of Bahamian Culture, and Bahamian history from 1942 onwards are filled with seimple truth and are easy to digest. I expect that this book will be widely read and reffered to in conversation with Bahamians and non-Bahamians alike. It would be particularly interesting to Bahamian students."
Sir Albert Miller, President and CEO of Modalena Company Limited and former President and Co-Chairman of the Grand Bahama Port Authority Group of Companies

This book is simply written and is accurate in its treatment of the materials. it is a must read for Bahamians who want to know how the history of their country has impacted their lives. it ia a book for the lettered and the unlettered. It is reader friendly and provides information for non-Bahamians who would wish to get to know about the Bahamas and its people. I will put a copy of this book in the hands of all my children and grandchildren.
