Eric Williams and the Making of the Modern Caribbean

Born in Trinidad, Eric Williams (1911–1981) founded the Republic of Trinidad and Tobago’s first modern political party in 1956, led the country’s movement for independence from the British culminating in 1962, and became the nation’s first prime minister. Before entering politics, he earned a doctorate from Oxford University, was a professor at Howard University, and wrote several books, including the classic Capitalism and Slavery. By: Colin A. Palmer
