Sachs and A. Clemens and Jeffrey G. II: , 2nd ed. Cambridge University Press, , Bordo and Finn E. Many middle-class West Indians of color duly adopted Britishness as part of their own identity.

Moving from the heights of empire in to the independence era of the s, this book argues that middle-class West Indians used their understanding of Britishness to establish a place for themselves in the British imperial world, and to negotiate the challenges of decolonization. Through a focus on education, voluntary organization, the challenges of war, radio broadcasting, and British royalty it explores how this process worked in the daily lives of West Indians in both the Caribbean and the British Isles.

This book tells the story of how indigenous Bolivians recovered and popularized histories of past rebellions, political models, and leaders, using them to build movements for rights, land, autonomy, and political power.
In the decade that followed, however, the British definition of Canada dissolved. Luis-Brown reveals how between the s and the s, writer-activists in Cuba, Mexico, and the United States developed narratives and theories of decolonization, of full freedom and equality in the shadow of empire.
