The British Caribbean: From the Decline of Colonialism to the End of Federation
The British Caribbean: From the Decline of Colonialism to the End of Federation
By Elizabeth Wallace
University of Toronto Press, 1977, 274 pp

This is the most detailed and complete account yet available of the political aspects of the Federal movement in the British Caribbean from the turn of the century to the demise of Federation in 1962. Its shattering collapse is attributed here to the triumph of insular over national loyalties and to "a lack of any positive fellow-feeling among its scattered people."
