Editorial Reviews


"Its sophistication...lends insight to those interested in the cultural politics of identity construction that found articulation in four primary discourses: white supremacism, the planter ideal, colonial loyalty, and colonial opposition (p. 208). It is also helpful for those readers interested in the application of postcolonial theory to an ample assortment of primary sources within the contexts of regional and transnational studies of the West Indies. In the end, Lambert has made an important contribution to the understanding of "the geographical 'problem of slavery,'" a topic that David Brion Davis so eloquently introduced to so many historians and that Lambert has continued to develop even further (p. 10)." - Michael Pasquier, Department of Religion, Florida State University, H-NET

Book Description

This book considers what it meant to be a white Briton in the West Indian colony of Barbados during the age of abolitionism. David Lambert offers a unique perspective into the consequences of these tumultuous times for a colony once renowned as the most loyal in the British Empire.
