C[YRIL]. L[IONEL]. R[OBERT]. JAMES (1901 - 1989)

"What does he know of cricket who only cricket knows?" (Beyond a Boundary)

"We live in one world and we have to find out what is taking place in the world.  And I, a man of the Caribbean, have found that it is in the study of Western literature, Western philosophy and Western history that I have found out the things that I have found out, even about the underdeveloped countries."  ("Discovering Literature in Trinidad: the 1930s")

"I denounce the scholarship of European colonialism, but I respect the learning and profound discoveries of Western civilisation."  ()
