Alejandra Dubcovsky

University Press of Mississippi

The rivalry between Britain and Spain serves as the backdrop to Alejandra Dubcovsky’s essay about the limitations of communication between European capitals and the colonial frontier as the aspiring global powers sparred over the construction of a modest British fort. Neither formal diplomatic negotiations in London nor the more informal, spontaneous efforts of local commanders could produce a common framework for the resolution of the dispute. Too often the parties spoke past, rather than with, each other as they each tried to assert their control over a patch of ground on the other side of the sea.
