About this book

There are a variety of crisis symptoms confronting the Commonwealth Caribbean as the 21st century dawns. Global changes are quickly rendering the region's traditional economic platform obsolete. This book suggests however that the expanding NAFTA or the hemispheric turn towards bloc formation can offer a way out for the Caribbean. Politics must be brought back into the regionalisation process, for each island government is witnessing the narrowing of the range of its state power by powerful TNCs, international financial institutions, Washington interests, and corporate-backed WTO commissions.

About the authors

He received his doctorate in the field of international political economy (IPE) from the University of Newcastle (1996). His dissertation was one of eight in that year nominated for the Lord Bryce prize in IPE. He has published a number of articles in distinguished academic journals and this book represents a refinement of his position on the future of the Caribbean, the globalisation phenomenon, and the state of the art in IPE.

Reviews

'The book is clearly a work of considerable scholarship and has quickly become an important influence in Caribean cultural analysis.' - Shibboleths: a Journal of Comparative Theory
