The Cato Street Conspiracy

The political thought of Thomas Spence encouraged rebellions in the colonies and on the political and economic ‘pheriphery’ against racism, and exconomic exploitation. This chapter shows how the Cato Street Conspirators were influenced by the views of Spence and his ‘Spencean’ followers concerning the righteousness and efficacy of resistance by Native Americans, slave rebellions in North America and the Caribbean, and the risings of the United Irishmen.

Keywords:   Spence, Thomas, Native Americans, resistance, slavery, slave rebellions, Ireland, United Irishmen, London Corresponding Society
