Inhaltsangabe: In August 1962, Trinidad and Jamaica became the first territories in the Caribbean to gain independence from Britain. After four centuries of expansion and consolidation, the relinquishment of British imperial control was intended to mark a new era but the subsequent history of the region has been a troubled one. Ordering Independence analyses the conflicts and controversies which accompanied the gradual transfer of power away from British politicians and officials to locally elected representatives and includes coverage of disputes between the British government and Caribbean nationalists over regional integration, the Cold War, immigration policy and financial aid. The central argument of the book challenges those accounts which attribute the post-independence problems of the Anglophone Caribbean to the inadequacies of nationalist leadership and provides a new assessment of the failures of British policy. Based on research in British, Caribbean and American archives, Ordering Independence offers the first comprehensive account of the end of empire in Jamaica, Trinidad, Barbados, St. Kitts, Grenada and British Guiana.

Inhaltsangabe: Ordering Independence offers a revisionist account of the conflicts between the British government and Caribbean nationalists during the era of decolonisation

Anbieterinformationen: We have been selling academic and scholarly books in Cambridge since 1996. Today we occupy an old warehouse on Coldhams Road, adjacent to the railway tracks leading to Ely, not too far from the airport. The site is called Restwell House. We are an internet bookshop, but visitors are very welcome. Some drop off a few boxes of unwanted books, some pick up a book to save on the postage, some just drop by to get to know us, or want to take advantage of the many bargains on our wooden shelves bookshop, which is distinct from the internet stock offered on the web. Our mission has always been to find new homes for the books we are looking after. If we cannot sell them online, we offer them at very low prices to our visitors. We try to give you a serious and dedicated service which is focussed on the individuality of each single book: its condition, its origin, sometimes even its smell. You come to us for real books, not just instances of ISBNs.
