A presentation copy, inscribed on the front cover 'To Dr CB Clarke with the compliments of the (Caribbean Commission) EW'. Eric Williams, who contributes a foreword, was the first Prime Minister of the Republic of Trinidad and Tobago, after leading the country to independence from the British in 1962. Dr. C.B. Clarke from Barbados came to England with the West Indies cricket team in the 1930s as an all-rounder who bowled leg-breaks, studied medicine and became a GP in Pimlico in London, and played for Northamptonshire and Essex. He was awarded the OBE in 1983 for his work with London's West Indian Community.
