Edmund Burke and the British Empire in the West Indies

Format: Academic Monograph
Media: Hardback
PublisherCode: 9780198841203
Publisher: OUP Oxford

In the later eighteenth century, the West Indian sugar islands were a source of conspicuous wealth for some individuals and an important addition to the resources of Great Britain. Edmund Burke and the British Empire in the West Indies examines Burke's long and hitherto hardly-studied involvement with the West Indies, both at a personal level through his family and friends, and at the level of public policy. It includes a full treatment of his often conflicted attitudes to the enslavement of Africans.
