Within three decades of the end of the Second World War, the once mighty British Empire had been dismantled leaving only a few residual spots of red on the world map. This was the age of de-colonisation and Independence. "Trespassers Forgiven" offers a personal glimpse into the history of British Honduras (Belize) at this crucial period in British history.C.H. Godden examines the long road Belize travelled to eventual independence in 1981 after more than a century as a British colony. He demonstrates the very real difficulties the new government faced and how the country's progression to independence was considerably delayed by Guatemala's territorial claim and the many international complications and obstacles that followed in its wake.Drawing on the author's personal experiences at the Colonial Office in the region at this decisive time, "Trespassers Forgiven" illuminates the colony's unique history and draws attention to the neglected and almost forgotten story of Britain's involvement in Central America. It includes penetrating personal reflections and recollections which serve as both an important resource for historians of the British Empire and of the Caribbean as well as an enthralling memoir for the general reader.
