Reviews

“Ordering Independence examines the decolonization of the Anglophone Caribbean. … Undergraduate and postgraduate students … will love Mawby’s work. It covers after all the whole region and provides them with a step-by-step overview of the negotiations between nationalist leaders and British policymakers.” (Henrice Altink, Journal of Contemporary History, Vol. 51 (1), 2016)
