Englishmen transplanted : the English colonization of Barbados, 1627-1660 / Larry Gragg.

This volume challenges the widely accepted view of 17th-century Barbados planters as reckless fortune seekers who failed to create a viable society in the tropics. Rather, it argues they were settlers eager to transplant what was familiar to them.
