Islands at the Crossroads examines the economic, political, and geopolitical environment of the twelve remnant colonies of the Caribbean. The authors clarify the features of the non-independent Caribbean nations, the challenges they face in a changing global arena and their political dilemmas and realities. They also consider such issues as the use of the Caribbean as a gateway for the drug trade. Scholars and policymakers alike will discover that Islands at the Crossroads is a valuable tool in evaluating the colonial condition.
