industrialisation increased, there was intense competition for capital investment and it was not at all clear in his opinion where the finance would come for new industrial ventures in Trinidad and Jamaica. 66 In his articles, Lewis recommended the formation of an industrial development bank to act as a lender of last resort, and an industrial development corporation that would act for the whole of the British Caribbean. 67 Overlooked in most discussions of Lewis’s vision of British Caribbean industrial development is the fact that his plan for West Indian industrialisation was

This inner lack, Said argues, is filled by two outside forces: ‘the wealth derived from a West Indian plantation’ and ‘a poor provincial relative’, Fanny Price, both ‘brought in to Mansfield Park and set to work’ chapter3 21/12/04 64 11:14 am Page 64 Imperialism (p. 110). Said makes much of this formal movement in space, from the outside to the inside; the movements of Fanny and of wealth not only correspond to one another but also ‘require each other’ and further, require ‘executive

African are the slaves ‘in the West Indian Islands, in Northern and Southern America, and in the South American colonies of Spain and Portugal’, who are, according to Soga, ‘opposed by nation after nation and driven from … home’ (p. 569). In the same breath Tiyo Soga can proudly place Africans as politically superior to diaspora black populations yet culturally inferior: he praises the Liberian project for allowing black Americans to return ‘unmanacled to the land of his forefathers, taking back with him the civilization and the Christianity of those nations’ (p. 569

Burke and Dowdesdwell continued to oppose his ideas, but Grenville supported them, ‘to flatter the country gentlemen, who can ill afford to combat with great lords, nabobs … and West Indians’, so Horace Walpole thought. When the ministry moved to kill the measure by closing the Committee without a report, Dowdeswell opposed this, because of his intended clause, and voted with Grenville in a minority of 69 to 93.31 The opposition, however, had meanwhile

as Oladuah Equiano, whose account of the horrors of the slave trade remains one of the few texts to describe in detail the systematic violence of the Middle Passage, also adopted the language of religious conversion to describe what slavery and the slave trade was like and to suggest that the way out of this violence for masters and slaves alike was through accepting Christian doctrines.25 What made slavery a sin was its violence, as many early abolitionists attested. Granville Sharp, for example, came to abolitionism mainly through seeing West Indian planters in

(His accomplices were Paul Storey, who had a West Indian father and white English mother, and Mustafa Faut, who was Turkish-Cypriot.) Here, the authors emphasise that this news report ‘picked up the familiar themes of race and crime’, quoting the paper’s assertion that ‘[all] the sentenced youths are either coloured or immigrants’ (Hall et al. 1978: 102, my emphasis). But they overlook the report’s emphasis on Duignan’s Irishness, and its distinction between ‘coloured’ and
