Empire and Nation-Building in the Caribbean : Barbados, 1937-66, Hardback Book

Empire and Nation-Building in the Caribbean : Barbados, 1937-66 Hardback

Part of the Studies in Imperialism series

Hardback

Description

This original and exciting book examines the processes of nation building in the British West Indies.

It argues that nation building was a more complex and messy affair, involving women and men in a range of social and cultural activities, in a variety of migratory settings, within a unique geo-political context.

Taking as a case study Barbados which, in the 1930s, was the most economically impoverished, racially divided, socially disadvantaged and politically conservative of the British West Indian colonies, Empire and nation-building tells the messy, multiple stories of how a colony progressed to a nation. It is the first book to tell all sides of the independence story and will be of interest to specialists and non-specialists interested in the history of Empire, the Caribbean, of de-colonisation and nation building. -- .
