Contents A common answer to disparate questions: envisioning Caribbean federation in the late nineteenth and early twentieth century -- Moving toward the crossroads of our destiny: black diaspora politics and the pursuit of West Indian nationhood (1930-1945) -- From long-standing dream to impending reality: Caribbean federation and the mobilization of black diaspora politics (1945-1950) -- Finalizing, defining, and welcoming the new nation (1950-1958).
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.
