English colonists from Barbados founded the sugar colony of Suriname in 1651, before losing it to the Dutch province of Zeeland in 1667. In her research, Suze Zijlstra focuses on this relatively neglected ‘Anglo-Dutch’ period of Surinamese colonial history. Using hundreds of personal letters from Dutch and Jewish colonists, extensive government correspondence, contemporary printed accounts, and seventeenth-century maps of the colony, she uncovers the complex ethnic interactions that took place between the Dutch, English and Jewish settlers, the indigenous population and the enslaved Africans.
