Henry Redhead Yorke, Colonial Radical : Politics and Identity in the Atlantic World, 1772-1813 Hardback

Part of the The Enlightenment World series

Description

This is a political, cultural and intellectual biography of the neglected but important figure, Henry Redhead Yorke.

A West Indian of African/British descent, born into a slave society but educated in Georgian England, he developed a complex identity to which politics was key.

The most revolutionary radical in Britain between 1793-5, Yorke then recanted his radicalism and died a loyalist gentleman.

This book raises important issues about the impact of "outsider" politics in England and the complexities of politicization and identity construction in the Atlantic World.

It restores a forgotten black writer to his due place in history.
