From the Publisher:
The Southern Caribbean was the last frontier in the Atlantic world and the most contested region in the Caribbean during the Age of Revolution. The three British colonies of Grenada, Trinidad and Demerera were characterized by insecurity and personified by the high mobility of people and ideas across empires; it was a part of the Caribbean that, more than any other region, provided an example of the liminal space of contested empires. Because of the multiculturalism inherent in this part of the world, as well as the undeveloped protean nature of the region, this was a place of shifting borderland communities and transient ideas, where women in motion and free people of colour played a central role. In illuminating this little understood frontier region, largely unrepresented in the meta-narratives of the Americas, Kit Candlin seeks to complicate and add nuance to our understanding of the Atlantic world. |
