This book is about the centrality of law in the world-view of the English political class of the 1860s. Its more specific subject-matter is the prolonged conflict that arose in England over the suppression of the Morant Bay uprising in Jamaica. The ensuing study consists respectively of seven analytical narrative chapters, an epilogue, a final thematic essay, and an historiographical appendix. The seven empirical chapters trace the historical development of the Jamaica affair in rough chronological order.
