9781331542872: Government of the West Indies (Classic Reprint)

Excerpt from Government of the West Indies

This book is intended to serve two purposes, and I am conscious that these purposes may appear at times inconsistent. It is designed, in the first place, to supply for the student of the constitutional history of the British Commonwealth a brief account of a neglected phase of that history; and, secondly, to provide an historical background for those who are interested in the political problems of the West Indies to-day. Those who refer to it for this second reason will probably not take great interest in such matters as the working of the old system of representative government in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, or the early history of British Honduras, or the first federation of the Leeward Islands. Those who take it up with the first object in view will find two chapters at the end which are not historical in character, and which have been included because it seemed that it might be well for a disinterested outside observer to try to draw some of the more obvious conclusions from the course of past history, even if these conclusions were only valuable for the purpose of refutation.

Little historical research in the scholarly sense has gone to the making of this book. It is based only on the more easily accessible of printed records, and it is intended to be no more than an outline. The West Indian colonies have received almost no attention from the scientific historian, and such attention as has recently been paid to them has been confined mainly to the first hundred and fifty years of their settlement. There is plenty of work still to be done before our knowledge even of recent events is moderately complete.
