Focused on the region as a whole and drawing from archives in Jamaica, Trinidad, Barbados, Guyana, St. Kitts, Antigua, the U.S. and U.K., this book details the region’s impact on the U.S. (particularly on Jim Crow), as it charts the British Empire’s retreat in the face of a challenge from Washington.
