Written by the 'father' of Trinidad. A history of the people of Trinidad and Tobago is an impressive scholarly work. It assesses the political background and the historical struggles of a once colonized and subjugated populations of what is now know as the Republic of Trinidad and Tobago. It also addressed their aspirations. Not only had it enhanced the ability of their nationals to relate politically to the outside world , but is also allowed them to communicate intellectually.
It was a timely and a critical move on the author's part to address the social and political ills of colonialism and educate the nationals of the twin isle nations to embrace their national independence with pride, dignity, and political integrity.
