Negotiating Caribbean Freedom examines how development programs in Jamaica lock the state and rural smallholders into a relationship that fulfills the agendas of both constituents. It further shows how development policies end up bureaucratizing agrarian relations.

Development's agrarian culture -- A plantation political context: of peasants, state and capital, 1838-1938 -- Forging nationals out of rural working peoples -- In the name of the "small man": "heavy manners" and the creation of new subjectivities -- Maneuvers of an embattled state: neoliberal privatization and the reconstitution of new rural subjects -- Inseparable autonomies: of state spaces and people spaces -- Epilogue: re-making the state and citizen: the specter of formal exclusions.
