9780198202783: British Slave Emancipation: The Sugar Colonies and the Great Experiment, 1830-1865 (Clarendon Paperbacks)

A study of the West Indies in the mid-nineteenth century, this book draws together the experiences of more than a dozen different sugar colonies and forms them into a coherent historical account. The first part of the book examines the West Indies on the eve of emancipation in 1830-1865, a key passage in West Indian history. Green presents a clear general picture of the sugar colonies, and places British governmental policy toward the region in the context of Victorian attitudes toward colonial questions.
