Democracy in the Caribbean : Myths and Realities, Hardback Book

Democracy in the Caribbean : Myths and Realities Hardback


This edited collection provides a comparative treatment of democratic development in the Caribbean.

Caribbean nations with British, French, Hispanic, Dutch, and American political traditions are examined.

The volume pulls together common themes that illuminate the character of the post-colonial state in both its authoritarian and democratic forms.

It examines the nature of and reasons for the survival of competitive parliamentary institutions on the one hand, and reasons for state decay and malfunction on the other.

This volume will be of particular interest to scholars and policy makers involved with comparative politics, Latin American and Caribbean studies, and sociology.
