More > Caribbean colonies of Belize & Jamaica, from Emancipation in 1838 until Crown Colony rule, 1871 for Belize, & 1866 for Jamaica. The purpose being to highlight the differences & similarities, & further an understanding of why certain historical phenomena occurred in 1 or 2 regions & not in another. The fundamental argument being that there was no simple step from slavery to freedom. That the local oligarchies in each region attempted to prevent, the former ‘Negro’ slaves from attaining full freedom, economically or politically, after Emancipation; tackling the extent to which they were prepared to go with coercive tactics to achieve their aims, using a variety of primary/secondary sources. Thus, the transition was not from slavery to freedom but from one system of labour controls to another, maintaining a de facto slavery.< Less

The thesis of this book is concerned with the British neglect of education in Belize and the emergence of increased tensions between church and state, from the twin catalysts for social change of the... More > 1931 hurricane and economic depression until independence in 1981. This conflict has revealed a contradictory web of power structures and their influence, through the medium of schools, on multi-cultural development. The fundamental argument is that despite a rhetoric-of-difference, a cohesive society was created in Belize rooted in the cultural values propagated through an often contradictory church,state education system, and that Jesuit supremacy of Belizean education came too late to unsettle or exploit the grass root forces of cultural synthesis. Racial conflict in Belize is more a matter of habitual rhetoric and superficial.< Less
