Grenada: Revolution and Invasion is a wide-ranging collection of essays by academics in the Caribbean, the United Kingdom and the United States, each with a unique perspective on the revolution and its effects. The Grenada events of 1979–1983, especially the revolution’s tragic demise, brought the country to the world stage. Since then, Grenada has retreated to its place as a small state, with little significance in shaping the global political and economic landscape within which small states operate. Nevertheless, powerful resonances remain, in the island, regionally and internationally. This volume seeks both to remind us of the tumultuous past, drawing lessons for the present generation, and to begin to suggest possible political approaches for the near, if inevitably uncertain, future.
