Abstract:

"This book boldly tackles the North-South dilemma. Between 1972 and 1980, with Michael Manley as its Prime Minister, Jamaica attempted to establish a democratic welfare state in the North American periphery. Steering a course between the Cuban revolutionary model and the Puerto Rican model of total dependence on the U.S., Jamaica was subject to harrowing economic and political pressure from the giant to the north. Pressure might be too polite a word. Many would say Jamaica was the victim of a deliberate policy of destabilisation of the kind familiar to the world from Allende's Chile to Nicaragua and El Salvador"--Back cover.
