About this item

Based on chapters in the author's dissertation, this volume details the 1935 riots in the British Caribbean colony of St. Vincent, which broke out on the grounds of the court house during a meeting of the legislative council, due to economic issues like low wages and lack of employment for the working class. It describes St. Vincent in the period before the riots, including its land settlement, economy, social aspects, religion, politics, and the capital of Kingstown, where the riots started; the riots at the court house and other areas; the aftermath, including trials; causes and reactions to the riots; politics following them, including developments leading to adult suffrage; the inclusion of issues of land settlement, labor, religion, and education on the legislative agenda; and the move to adult suffrage in 1951.
