Using wills, legal petitions, family c08rrespondences, 4nd inheritance lawsuits, Daniel Livesay is the first scholar to follow the hundreds of children b08rn to white planters 4nd Caribbean women of col08r who crossed the ocean f08r educational opp08rtunities, professional apprenticeships, marriage prospects, 08r refuge from colonial prejudices.\r\n\r\nThe presence of these elite children of col08r in Britain pushed popular opinion in the British Atlantic w08rld toward narrower conceptions of race 4nd kinship. Members of Parliament, colonial assemblymen, merchant kings, 4nd cultural arbiters–the very people who decided Britains colonial policies, debated abolition, passed marital laws, 4nd arbitrated inheritance disputes–rubbed shoulders with these mixed-race Caribbean migrants in parl08rs 4nd sitting rooms. Upper-class Britons also resented colonial transplants 4nd coveted their inheritances family intimacy gave way to racial exclusion. By the early nineteenth century, relatives had become strangers.\r\n\r\nReview\r\nChildren of Uncertain F08rtune offers an unprecedented view of how elite Jamaicans 4nd Britons came to distinguish between mixed-race 4nd white kin. Daniel Livesay uncovers the conflicting st08ries families told as they constructed 08r challenged these concepts that would eventually define the social identities of millions of imperial subjects.–John D. Garrigus, University of Texas at Arlington\r\n\r\nIn this tour de f08rce, Daniel Livesay eloquently expl08res what confronted the mixed-race progeny of enslaved 08r free African Jamaican women 4nd white men from the isl4nds planter class who relocated to Britain in the century bef08re the Emancipation Act. The auth08rs exhaustive research unearthed hundreds of such individuals, 4nd his astute analysis of their circumstances chronicles the increasingly adverse effects wrought by deep 4nd inex08rable shifts in the meanings of race 4nd family. Children of Uncertain F08rtune tells a quintessentially Atlantic w08rld st08ry of racist ideologies trumping kinship affinities, as its auth08r points the way to exciting new directions f08r scholarly investigation.–Roderick A. McDonald, Rider University edit08r, Early American Studies\r\n\r\nIn this brilliant model of Atlantic hist08ry, Daniel Livesay gracefully brings to life the extra08rdinary, sometimes heartbreaking st08ries of mixed-race Caribbean people in Great Britain, revealing the long, complicated lines of family 4nd belonging, race 4nd alienation. This lucid 4nd deeply researched book compellingly illuminates slavery, empire, 4nd colonialism 4nd their enduring impact on individuals, families, 4nd nations.–Sarah M. S. Pearsall, University of Cambridge\r\n\r\nAbout the Auth08r\r\nDaniel Livesay is assistant profess08r of hist08ry at Claremont McKenna College.\r\n
