Charting Caribbean Development - Anthony Payne and Paul Sutton

£15.00 Out Of Stock

Product description

This is an overarching account of Caribbean development within the framework of increasing globalization of the world economy. It charts the shifting politics of development within the countries of the Commonwealth Caribbean during the last 40 years era of independence for most of these countries.It offers an urgent commentary on the experience of Caribbean development in the postcolonial era, a critical discussion of the current crisis of globalization in the region. Specifically, it examines the different national models of development that have been pursued in the past forty years in Anglophone Caribbean countries such as Jamaica, Trinidad and Tobago, Barbados, and Grenada. In addition, the coauthors address problems of integration and examine the region's main external linkages to Europe and North America that affect its development opportunities. They also present remarkably lucid accounts of the complex and tangled issue of the banana controversy, the role of U.S. fruit multinationals, and the role of the World Trade Organization in addressing these sorts of issues. Not only for Caribbean specialists, this book will be valuable for those concerned with international political economy and development problems generally.
