Eric Williams & the Making of the Modern Caribbean

University of North Carolina Press

Leaders of the various islands of the West Indies Federation—Grantley Adams of Barbados, Norman Manley of Jamaica, and Eric Williams of Trinidad and Tobago had fundamental differences over the federation's structure and certain policy issues. Following his announcement in January 1962 that Trinidad would seek independence, Williams invited some of the other islands to join his country in a political union. This chapter describes how Williams undertakes the futile tasks of integrating Grenada into a unitary statehood with Trinidad and Tobago.

Keywords:   West Indies Federation, Grantley Adams, Barbados, Norman Manley, Jamaica, Eric Williams, Trinidad and Tobago, Grenada, unitary statehood
