Abstract

Former Jamaican Prime Minister Michael Manley was a powerful and influential figure both at home and abroad. He was determined to improve the position of the Jamaican people by reconfiguring both political and economic orthodoxies, which he and many others felt were still too closely aligned to British colonialism and American imperialism. This period of history within the Caribbean is a particularly interesting one because of the charismatic individuals involved, the attempts to implement new approaches to political organisation and economic management, and how despite their focus on national self-worth and unity both men became and remain still extremely polarising figures. So it is within this context that the three books under review are presented.
