Post-war demobilization is a useful starting-point for an examination of the process of decolonization, though the themes of this chapter also connect with those of colonial rule since the 19th century. In the first two decades of the 20th century middle-class reform organizations proliferated throughout the British Caribbean. The failure to ameliorate conditions in the British Caribbean reflected the limited responsibility which the British government accepted for colonial development. At the time of the collapse of the Federation, the problems of colonial development in the British Caribbean, which had preoccupied Imperial policy-makers since 1938, remained unresolved. In the post-war years, the main emphasis was placed on Britain's economic reconstruction.
