This book explores the historical connection between Scotland and the Caribbean in the later part of the eighteenth century. This study shows not only that Scottish networks existed throughout the eighteenth-century West Indies, and especially in the period after the Seven Years War, but that the cohesion within these groupings was not based simply on Scottishness. It evaluates the role of Scots on the plantations and as merchants, doctors and politicians in the islands and suggests that Scottish-Caribbean connections suggests among the key bonds forging a transnational maritime world of exchange. This volume considers the repatriation of people and capital from the Caribbean, and their impact on developments in Scotland.
