Kingston: Ian Randle Publishers, National Library of Jamaica, 2018. First edition. Paperback. 126p., wrps. New. Item #189670
A new edition of the 1952 publication which provided biological sketches of Bishop Enos Nuttal, George William Gordon, Robert Love, Thomas Henry Macdermot, Edward Jordon, and Herbert George de Lisser. This new edition contains a new introduction by Professor Matthew Smith, which underscores the relevance of the enduring legacies of these six figures to present-day Jamaica and sets the foundatino for an appreciation of the contributions of Jamaicans from all walks of life in the continuing strruggle for national self-definition from the early days of Emancipation and the movement for self government, to the present day.
