Implications for Decolonization under Globalization, 1940–1970

(p.21) Chapter 2 Tentative Anticolonialism
Decolonization in St. Lucia

Tennyson S. D. Joseph

University Press of Mississippi

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
