Synopsis: Labour Pains: Resistance and Protest in Barbados, 1838 1904 portrays the experiences of workers in Barbados in the period of transition from slavery to a free labour system. Henderson Carter describes the hardships faced by the newly freed population, as well as their responses to the injustices levelled against them by their former enslavers. These responses varied from arson to riot, from rebellion to complete disengagement from the sugar estates and a rejection of the plantation culture and lifestyle. Carter also discusses the various legislations enacted by the authorities in an attempt to control a population which had been freed without access to the necessary social institutions. Labour Pains highlights the persistent struggle of the working population of Barbados against poverty and disenfranchisement. It is a must-read for anyone seeking to understand the dynamics of labour protest and resistance within this period.

About the Author: Dr Henderson Carter is a lecturer in History at the University of the West Indies, Cave Hill and is the author of Business in Bim: A Business History of Barbados, 1900 2000 and Shaping a Nation: Principals of Barbadian Schools, 1900 1980.

Book Description Ian Randle Publishers,Jamaica, Jamaica, 2012. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. In Labour Pains , Henderson Carter highlights the persistent struggle of the working population of Barbados against poverty and disenfranchisement and their unceasing efforts to attain social benefits - basic civil rights - and material benefits such as land and better wages and working conditions. Focusing on the immediate post Emancipation period in 1838 up until the beginning of mass migration to Panama in 1904, Labour Pains portrays the experiences of Barbadian workers in the period of transition from slavery to a free labour system. Backed by references from original source material such as Parliamentary proceedings, plantation records and official reports as well as newspaper accounts and contemporary sources, Carter recounts the hardships suffered by the newly freed population and their responses to the injustices levelled against them. From arson to riot, rebellion to disengagement, workers resistance in Barbados between 1838 and 1904 laid the foundations for the momentous activities of the 1930s and the subsequent development of a modern political culture of democratic governance.
