Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 976810063X, Paperback)

This text presents an analysis of the agricultural and food-producing sector of the English-speaking Caribbean "island economies", set in historical perspective. It discusses the reasons for the relative decline of this sector, and the failure of policy proposals for its resuscitation. Issues examined include: the legacy of the plantation economy, which emphasizes luxury export crops over basic food production; the reliance on multinational donor funding for economic development, and the resulting manipulation of agricultural projects by such external agencies; and liberalization of the market economy leading to more underdevelopment of the region and dependence on the international market system.
