Outlining development strategies for small islands within increasingly integrated regional and global economies, this book offers intriguing lessons in the culture, economics, and management of a sustainable pattern of development based on an island’s locally proven, home-grown “good sense.” Considered from the frameworks of internal economic organization and resource management and external integration and dependent development, Competing Strategies uses case studies on many islands in crafting innovative development approaches.
