Review “Base Colonies is strikingly original– the comparison of the labor and social history of a series of different British colonies as each dealt with the effects of the construction of US military bases provides a window into how empire, class and race work. Theoretically engaged and grounded in a deep understanding of each society, this book is comparative social history at its best. High has shown us that grand strategic decisions pay benefits and impose costs on those who find themselves hosting the United States armed services.”--Jeff Webb, Department of History, Memorial University of Newfoundland; Editor, Newfoundland and Labrador Studies "World War II was a watershed in modern history and High focuses on a critical time and element in the period, namely the consequences of the destroyers-for-bases deal made between the UK and the USA in 1940. The book is original in the geographical scope of its material and the nature of its comparative perspective. Its study of the bases in Bermuda and Newfoundland as well as the Caribbean is unique. In addition to the historiographical importance of this book, the whole question of the rights and behavior, the legality and the impact, of US service personnel in and around their bases in foreign countries is highly topical and very relevant for the foreseeable future."--Nigel Bolland, Charles A. Dana Professor of Sociology and Caribbean Studies, Emeritus, Colgate College"Don't miss this book - it will broaden your perspectives on the effects of the Second World War." —Frank D. McCann, The Journal of Latin American Studies About the Author Steven High is Canada Research Chair in Public History at Concordia University in Montreal, Canada. He is the author of several books and articles exploring race and labor in times of sudden transformative change.
