In lieu of an abstract, here is a brief excerpt of the content:

ACKNOWLEDGMENTS First, I must express my deepest gratitude to my supervisor at the University of Hull, Professor David Richardson. I deeply appreciate his unfailing concern for my well-being, his support of every academic adventure I embarked on during my three years at Hull, his patient, candid, and useful criticism, and his astute suggestions for surmounting the challenges that I faced as a research student. I am also grateful for the meticulous scrutiny with which Professor David Eltis, Queens University of Canada, perused early drafts of these chapters. To the ever efficient Gill Craig and the very pleasant and helpful Vikki Magee at Hull, I say thank you. I am indebted to the University of Hull for the Black Diaspora Scholarship and to the School of Economics, University of Hull, which also contributed to my financial support. I say thanks to the trustees of the Phillip Reckitt Trust Fund for sponsoring part of my research trip to Barbados, Jamaica, and Guyana in 2000 and to the directors of Arnold Matthew Publications, who also contributed generously to that trip. My gratitude goes to the David Nicholls Memorial Trust Fund for making it possible for me to conduct research at the Bodleian Library in Oxford and the Angus Library at Regent’s College, Oxford. I am thankful to Dr. Diana Paton , Mrs. Marjorie Davis, and others at the Society for Caribbean Studies for two bursaries that enabled me to attend and present papers at their seminars and conferences in 2000 and 2001. To the many families who accommodated me in their homes during my research trips, thank you very much. These families are Margaret and Owen Minnot of Hope Pastures, Jamaica; Margaret and Anthony Christy of St. Phillip, Barbados; Janice and John Woolford of Demerara, Guyana; Dr. Christine Ayorinde of Jack Straw Lane, Oxford, England; and Chris Essilfie of Hillsborough Court, London, England. I am especially thankful to Professor Bridget Brereton of the University of the West Indies, St. Augustine Campus, who first believed in my ability to make some useful contribution to this body of scholarship and xi This page intentionally left blank CARIBBEAN SLAVE REVOLTS AND THE BRITISH ABOLITIONIST MOVEMENT This page intentionally left blank ...
