Book Description

Henry J Lewis Jr. has presented a collection of essays rooted in sociological, organizational, and the psycho-socio-cultural theories of complex networks of behavioural interactions. He addresses several transformational challenges that Jamaica, and to a large extent the entire Caribbean region, must grapple with in the 21st Century. In a unique style of writing, he gives his opinions on the challenges in education - issues of funding, STEM or STEAM and the need for more online delivery. The behavioural scientist has also shared his insights into the much-debated National Identification Systems (NIDS) for Jamaica; the plastic ban and the well-being economy; crime and national security, among other topics of national importance. This easy to read collection of essays will prove valuable to students, academics, and members of the general public.
