A Revolution Aborted: The Lessons of Grenada
The 1979 uprising that toppled Grenada's prime minister, Eric Gairy, was the first unconstitutional transfer of power to take place in the Commonwealth Caribbean. In turn, the 1983 invasion of Grenada was the first U.S. occupation of an English speaking Caribbean territory. Twelve essays address both specific features of the Grenada experience and broader theoretical issues that go to the heart of the dilemmas faced by many small developing societies today.
