Summary:Rather than hewing to labor uprisings in the 1930s as the generative moment for West Indian nationhood, Eric Duke here begins with political and social conflicts from the late nineteenth century to argue that efforts to create a federation in the British Caribbean were much more than merely an imperial or regional nation-building project. This manuscript highlights the significant connections between Caribbean federation and other anticolonial struggles of the black diaspora.
