Description

Small quarto in light orange-brown polished cloth, xxii, 567p; 23 cm. Mimeograph printing. Scarce work by the author of Capitalism & Slavery. An impressive compendium of 852 sources, with jkey excerpts quoted on all aspects of "Western Civilzation", particularly its institutions and social movements such as Romanticism, French Revolution, Humanism, Slavery, Capitalism, and Democracy. This is Volume 2 only, which is the second of three volumes: v. 1. To 1688.--v. 2. 1689-1880.--v. 3. 1881-1948 || "Dr. Eric Williams considered himself a teacher, historian and a philosopher. Before and during his tenure as prime minister of Trinidad and Tobago, he wrote many articles and books on the Caribbean, education, and politics... In 1939, Williams migrated to the United States to teach at Howard University. He became an assistant professor of social and political sciences and organized several courses, especially a humanities course for which he developed a three-volume work called Documents Illustrating the Development of Civilization (1947). While at Howard, Williams began to work as a consultant to the Anglo-American Caribbean Commission, a body set up after the war to study the future of the region. In 1948, he left Howard to head the Research Branch of the Caribbean Commission. He later (1955) resigned from the Commission in protest against its crypto-colonialist policies." --Race and History.com || Black Studies.
