Far from Paradise: An Introduction to Caribbean Development
Far From Paradise looks at the Caribbean behind the tourist brochures: small, vulnerable countries beset by poverty and injustice, searching for a road out of underdevelopment. It traces the history of the area and looks at recent experiences of Jamaica, Grenada, Trinidad & Tobago, and Haiti--and evaluates their differing approaches towards development. Other sections focus on the role of transnational corporations in the Caribbean, the problems of regional integration and examples of alternative, grassroots development.
