[First lines]It is very difficult to operate within the plantation economy paradigm (Best 1968; Beckford 1972; Girvan 1973), and treat history as subject to change. This was the substance of my critique in my article in NWIG 68 (pp. 77-99). lts empirical subject matter dealing with the lived experiences of smallholders (popularly designated Caribbean folk) demonstrated the limitations of the plantation paradigm in exploring the rich lives of Caribbean working peoples. I am one of several analysts who has made my discomfort with the paradigm clear and so there have been numerous critiques (Bernstein & Pitt 1974; Sudama 1979). I will cite only the most salient given the nature of this exercise.
