Democratic Advance and Conflict Resolution in Post-colonial Guyana

Front Cover
Peepal Tree, 2009 - History - 224 pages
Conflict between Africans and Indians has undermined social and economic development in Guyana for more than four decades. This sequel to Contributions Towards the Resolution of Conflict in Guyana moves beyond historical and theoretical analysis of the ethnic conflict and the principles on which resolution might be based by proposing practical steps toward finding a way out of the current political impasse.

As a student of Arend Lijphart's, I have to say that I find his approach measured and balanced, and I think Lijphart would too. Read full review
