What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

Neptune provides an engaging analysis of the rise of nationalist sentiments in 1930s Trinidad. Rich in detail, persuasive in its arguments, and balanced in tone, this is a major contribution to the historiography of Trinidad and Tobago.—Colin A. Palmer, Princeton University
