Abstract: 

This paper presents an insight into a volume on education and training in the Caribbean tourism industry. The author recognises that though tourism is the main industry in the region, there exists a great need for more research into Caribbean tourism. The volume therefore, combines the expertise of 28 authors from 13 Caribbean countries, who explore issues related to the past, present and future of some of the tourism and hospitality educational institutions in the region, and the need to develop the human resources in the Caribbean to face the challenges and changes in the industry in the 21st century. This paper briefly presents and reviews the findings of this volume.
