Book Description

The global system has become increasingly complex, and notwithstanding the end of the Cold War and the liberalising of the world economy, there are new threats and new problems that require carefully thought-out responses, rather than ad hoc solutions and approaches.

Caribbean Survival and the Global Challenge is such a collection of carefully thought-out responses by some of the region’s leading voices on the broad range of implications created by globalisation for Caribbean states, and the development options emerging from the changes in the regional and international environment.
