FROM CHATTEL SLAVE TO WAGE EARNER: A HISTORY OF TRADE UNIONISM IN TRINIDAD AND TOBAGO
HISTORY (London, Martin Brian & O'Keeffe, 1982)
This is the first history of Trade Unionism in Trinidad and Tobago and an important
study of colonial and neo-colonial labour history. It provides a timely and useful
perspective on the local labour movement.
West Indian emigration is well known but little understood. Given also the country's
recent industrialization and the wider implications of this, the reader concerned with
the problems of underdevelopment in the Caribbean will find much of interest in this book.
"An outstanding work......well written."
