Colonialism and Governance in the Early Modern Caribbean
Chapter 1 provides a scene-setting discussion of the categories of inclusion and exclusion used throughout the book. It traces the ways in which the crown’s early governing practices were defined and implemented in relation to Havana’s geographic position and its role in the system of early modern trade, commerce, and conquest. As a complement to royal concern with the Atlantic, local administrators began to look inward at the internal organization and structure of the city, thus establishing the preoccupations that guided the future development of the city.
