Lewis Henry lived through the post World War II demise of European imperial adventures. After centuries of conflict, genocide and slavery of indigenous peoples to maximise profits from their colonies, the ruling powers confronted each other in a devastating war. The lessons learned from this disaster led to the adoption of more enlightened philosophies, systems of government and social institutions to avoid further destruction on a global scale. Hence, European societies were transformed into welfare states, former colonies gained their ‘independence’, and transport and communications were improved worldwide. The technological revolutions of the 21st century are now creating a global village that requires the elimination of oppression based on gender, class, race, caste and ethnicity so that people may live in peace and prosperity. This novel, by the descendant of slaves whose voices have not been heard for centuries, is a modest contribution to the creation of a better world.

Lewis Henry is the product of a caring community in Barbados. He migrated to the UK in response to the need for workers to help rebuild Britain after World War II. Encouraged by his family, he pursued education at several universities in search of answers to the social challenges he encountered. He taught at secondary and tertiary institutions before establishing a skills training and enterprise centre in Birmingham. Then, as Caribbean Director of the Commonwealth Youth Programme, he provided educational and financial resources to help recipients create a better world. Now retired, he continues to inspire youth through his writing.
