This chapter examines the period from 1940–1970, when the early nationalist movement gradually occupied state power within a framework of limited self-government. The discussions cover the social structure of colonial St. Lucia and the challenge of working-class nationalism; the emergence of tentative anti-colonialism as ideologically hegemonic within the nationalist movement in St. Lucia; the perceived limitations in the capacity of St. Lucia for the responsibility of full political sovereignty; and the character of St. Lucian nationalism.

Keywords:   nationalist movement, state power, self-government, nationalism, anti-colonialism, sovereignty
