Description

The crucial eight years during which the PNP, under P.M. Michael Manley, tried to reduce Jamaica's dependence on the West, to build a more just society within the framework of a parliamentary system.

Contributor Notes

Michael Kaufman works professionally as a writer, public speaker, consultant, and workshop leader on gender relations for governments, corporations, trade unions, universities, schools, and non-governmental organizations, in particular, the United Nations. He has previously taught at York University in Toronto where he was Deputy Director of the Centre for Research on Latin America and the Caribbean.

Editorial Reviews

His class analysis illuminates the profound class constraints that ultimately eroded the massive popular base of support for the transition to socialism. For all scholars and activists interested in the issues of socialism and democracy, this is a major contribution.

— James Petras, professor

Dr. Kaufman has written an interesting work. It is carefully researched and well worth reading, dealing–as it does–with one of the more controversial experiments in recent history of Third World politics.

— Michael Manley

I express my admiration for Michael Kaufman's commitment and perspicacity. The result is an objective assessment of the strengths and weaknesses of the PNP.

— Dr. D.K. Duncan, former General Secretary of the PNP
