Planning the Past: Heritage Tourism and Post-Colonial Politics at Port Royal

Planning the Past Studies the way a post-colonial society reconstructs its history and grapples with its past, specifically in Port Royal, a Jamaican village with a dramatic history of pirates, naval admirals, and earthquakes. This book shows how the plans for Port Royal's heritage tourism development represent a chronological record of historical revisionism.
