This book is an introductory political portrait of the English-speaking Caribbean or the Anglophone Caribbean. It provides information and insights into the region’s political evolution from the 1930s to the present. Topics covered include Decolonization and Independence, Black Power, Regional Integration, Ethnicity and Politics, Resistance and Revolution and Political Leadership. The book is written particularly with students in mind, especially those with little or no knowledge of the region. It is by no means an exhaustive account of the region’s politics, but it offers the reader enough to make sense of this small but complex collection of small island and mainland states.
