Caribbean migration to Britain brought many new things--new music, new foods, new styles. It brought new ways of thinking too. This lively, innovative book explores the intellectual ideas which the West Indians brought with them to Britain. It shows that for more than a century West Indians living in Britain developed a dazzling intellectual critique of the codes of Imperial Britain. This is the first comprehensive discussion of the major Caribbean thinkers who came to live in twentieth-century Britain. Chapters discuss the influence of, amongst others, C.L.R. James, Una Marson, George Lamming, Jean Rhys, Claude McKay and V.S. Naipaul.

Review:

"This is a fine collection and its significance lies in several areas. West Indian intellectuals were important actors in the drama that was to change the face of Britain, both because they adopted and reformulated British ideas about culture, and because they brought with them important cultural texts, including novels, poems and essays."--Simon Gikandi, University of Michigan
