Römer, René, Curaçao, Curaçao: Association of Caribbean Universities and Research Institutes [UNICA], 1981.

Reviewed in Hispanic American Historical Review (1982) 62 (4): 730.

From the Foreword by Leito, B. M., Governor of the Netherlands Antilles:
Un Pueblo Na Kaminda – a People on the Move: an apt title for a study of the evolution of the population of the island of Curaçao from the coming of the first settlers from overseas to its present day composition, with a look into the future. I consider this study by Dr. René Römer so important because it gives the reader an idea of the genesis of our remarkable, extremely mixed society. In my opinion, variety is perhaps the most typical feature of the society of Curaçao: this variety is expressed in the different shades of skin colour, the other racial characteristics, religious confessions, the many languages spoken by groups and families, and many other aspects of social life on the island.
