Reproducing the British Caribbean

This chapter considers the extent to which many of the ideas and approaches concerning population growth and infant and maternal welfare in Britain's Caribbean colonies—particularly Jamaica, Guyana, and Barbados—continued to be expressed in the 1930s in the context of the West India Royal Commission (Moyne Commission) hearings. It also examines how Caribbean men and women influenced the commission by expressing their views about sex, reproduction, and morality, as well as making their own demands.

Keywords:   population growth, child welfare, maternal welfare, Britain, Caribbean, colonies, West India Royal Commission, sex, reproduction, morality
