MOST colonial territories today apart from
those of Portugal and those inside the Soviet
Union are small states. They have not been
decolonised because there has been some
d o ubt about how they can be decolonised.
Most of them are British colonies, and in
spite of the very clear consciousness min
London that the colonial era has passed, no
one knows what to do with the remaining de-
pendent territories. The Anguilla crisis showed
us several faces of the problem.

This situation was foreseen a quarter of a
century ago when the extent of decolonisa-
tion was only dimly envisaged and thought
to belong to the distant future. At that time,
it was accepted doctrine that although the
main colonial territories like Nigeria and
Ghana were destined for eventual independ-

ence, no such destiny would be remotely
possible for the smaller colonies.
Today, however, many of the territories,:
,which used to come under this heading are
sovereign states, not even linked by defence
agreements to the former colonial power.
There are island states in this condition and
also continental states. There is the Gambia
in West Africa, and there is Malta in the
Mediterranean.There are the Maldive Islands
in the Indian Ocean and there is Barbados
in the Caribbean.

These are only a few examples of those which have achieved their
indep en. ne. They have already- discovered that the political and. e6oio-
mic problems which come with independence are great; and perhaps the'
greatest of them all is the nem and perhaps a little unexpected -
coaasoousnesa of national honou r which independence brings. Many ot -as
have been astonished And impressed by Mr. Mintoff's assertion that1'-
sovereign Malta is equal .to savereig, Great Britaino, and by his attempt
to foaud a new relationship between, the two states on this basis.
The number of these. indepexndoit states pales beside; those which lare
nat yet reached independence The original British idea for these was a
s tem of regional groupings the creation. of new states which would. be
big ea ogh to reach viable inde;peundezce- i the long, run.' Many of these
hae been ti~ie.d, weave; and it is difficult tc find one which has
succeeded. At one time the most flourishing of embryo federations was
to be found in the Caribbean -but little trace exists today of the
efforts towards union which engaged some of the region major figures.
a decade ago.
The Caribbean area, indeed, provides us with a microcosm'of the
problems of small states* And this is one reason why I should like par-
ticularly to recommend to those concerned with. these problems Sir
Harold Mitchell's new CARIBBEAN PATTERNS SECOND EDITION (Chambers -
6.50 UK pounds). This is nothing less than a manual on small states,
as exemplified ih!nthe small states of the Caribbean area. When the,
first edition was published in 1967, reviewers were impressed greatly
by the thoroughness and scholarly attributes of Sir Harold, as applied
to a. subject which has in recent years engendered so much polemic. It
was suggested by more than" one reviewer that this should become a stand-
ard textbook on the area; and since 1967 I am glad to say that this is
exactly what has happened --in the sphere of higher education at least.
The second edition ofi CARIBBEAN PATTERNS is very much more than a
second edition usually is. Much has happened in the area in the past
six years, and this is all integrated into the book. The prospects and
conclusions are different now, and. Sir Harold takes account of this.
Mapy chapters, in the book have been rewritten, and much new material has
been added. Those who know Sir Harold's previous work will be anxious
to know how he sets recent events into the Caribbean background, and
those who do not will find here a coherent survey of the subject
Above all and this is the main purpose of its mention here\--
CARIBBEAN PATTERNS is a contribution to the study of the problems of
small states; and it is, I think, important to apply this contribution
to states away from the Caribbean whose leaders ought to be well ac-
quainted with the thoughts. of other peoples' leaders and governments.
Sir Harold does not think that-islands can get very far in the
twentieth century world if they insist too much on their own local
nationalism. Nor does he believe that there is much immediate future
for federation of the classic type in the Caribbean. Territorial diver-
sity, he says, impedes close union. In this sense there is something
of pessimism in the book. Economically, the smallness; of local markets
seems to set a limit to the momentum of economic development, and there
seems very little chance of small states- pulling themselves up by their
But the Caribbean islands are in an ideal position to cooperate with
the major industrialized powers, and Sir Harold, unfashionably but with
impeccable economic argument, feels that small states cannot afford the
luxury of cocking a snook. He quotes Frantz Fanon, the philosopher
of the Algerian Revolution : "Come, then, comrades, the European game
has finally ended; we must find something different, We today can do
everything, so long as we do not imitate Europe, so long as we are not
obsessed by the desire to catch up with Europe."

Mr. Leblanc ;s. keeping a. grip on such
delicate matters as personal and public

he has kept it from I1'. Leslie; Carib-

biggest downfall (excepting the events
of Dec.16) through the'"death of the
Grenada Declaration, to which he was
totally committed is an example.The

Mr. Armour's 1trongIiold is in'the field

THE VIABILITY OF' SMALL STATES by laA Tickle (from p2.) ,
But,- says Sir Harold, it is easy for Frantz Fanon, .a West Indian *
to write o.ff'Europe]'aud work out new concepts.- "North Africa does not.
face the. populatiOn. pressure of his native Martinique, .Regardless of
the advantage.of being k department of France, Martinique has not the .
space-, of Algeria, .though it has a. substantially dhigher- standard of. .
living. "
This is the- crx- of .the matter. Small. states simply do not ave' -
the same...prosgeet.s as large'.ones,. however. uninfluential-the latter-, may
be at. the moment... Libya is a potential giant, which Barbados canr neverbe.
Small states cannot afford th. sau'n luxuries on the.political scene
'ialess, that- is. their leaders should prefer prestige to achievemezntt,
"As more. and more, countries seek to industrialist", writes Sir' Harold., -.
"the temptation t exprop-iate. or take, over fbraig.n-ovaied concerns in-
creases. Yet at the: end of the, day the only large sources of capital
and expertise rest in the .developed countries. This position is a- n.
likely to change. in the near future." '
Reading Sir, Harold's book, one.does not have. the feeling that he
wishes to preserve foreign influence for its ow sake, but much rather
to ciro*micribe it; -for he recognises the dangers as much'as anyone.
But -there is very little. cho.iee for a small country: development needs
heavy injections .o. capital; and never, whate-er happens, can these
amounts of capital be, obtained through anything 'that happens inside .a
siall country. This is, in short, a thesis which has relevance in
