1965 (Jerome S. Handler) Land Exploitative Activities and Economic Patterns in a Barbados Village. Unpublished PhD Dissertation, Brandeis University.
This study is concerned with one sector of the economic life of a small village in the hill area — known as the Scotland District — of the island of Barbados, British West Indies. It will focus upon a description and analysis of the ways in which land resources in and around the village of Chalky Mount are exploited, and upon the kinds of social relationships villagers form in the pursuance of economic activities related to land exploitation. Of secondary, but related, importance is a concern with the ways in which villagers combine their land-based and other economic activities in order to meet their cash and subsistence needs.
