The Life of Captain Cipriani (1932) is the earliest full-length work of nonfiction by the Trinidadian writer C.L.R. James, one of the most significant historians and Marxist theorists of the twentieth century. The book is as much polemic as biography. Written in Trinidad and published in England, The Life of Captain Cipriani, and the pamphlet excerpted from it by Leonard and Virginia Woolf's Hogarth Press in 1933, are early and powerful statements of West Indian nationalism.
