During the 1980s, the nature of modern politics in the Caribbean changed. This book examines the origins of nationalist politics in the Caribbean and reviews the crisis years of the 1970s. Subsequent chapters focus on the events and legacies of the 1980s.

The essays are well written and give a fair and competent account of the chronology of events and processes. They convey the overpowering, in some cases stultifying, influence of individualism in the politics of each country... A good, regional perspective and much solid material for future research. * International Affairs *
