A Small Place is Jamaica Kincaid’s memoir of growing up in Antigua as well as an indictment of the Antiguan government and Britain’s colonial legacy in Antigua. Kincaid blames colonial rule for many of Antigua’s current problems, including drug dealing and selling off land for tourist properties. Kincaid’s critics question why, if the British are responsible for the Antiguan government’s corruption, the British government itself isn’t more corrupt. Kincaid has responded that there must have been some good people among the British, but that they stayed home.

Consider each of the answer choices separately and indicate all that apply.

Based on the information in the passage, with which of the following would Kincaid be likely to agree?

  • A government can bring about a degree of corruption abroad that the government itself does not suffer from at home.
  • Britain has caused corruption in governments throughout its former colonial empire.
  • The British who colonized Antigua were more likely to be corrupt than the general British population.

Kincaid’s critics point out that Britain’s government is not as corrupt as
Antigua’s. Kincaid makes a witty rejoinder, but does not deny that the British government is less
corrupt than Antigua’s. This, coupled with her stated belief that Britain is responsible for corruption
in Antigua, justifies the first and third statements. As for the second statement, no governments of the
“former colonial empire” are discussed in the passage except Antigua’s.
