How do recent trends toward globalization affect the Caribbean, a region whose suppliers, production, markets, and politics have been globalized for centuries? What is the status of neoliberal development policy in the Caribbean, where the rewards for belt tightening and economic opening have been slow in coming? How have Caribbean policymakers and citizens responded to and resisted the pressures to conform to the new rules of the global economy? By examining these questions through the lens of political economy, this volume explores the interaction among development, trade, foreign policy, the environment, tourism, gender relations, and migration. With its global implications, this book will be invaluable for students and scholars from all disciplines who are concerned with the impact of development and globalization.

About the Author:

Thomas Klak is associate professor of geography and director of the Latin American studies program at Miami University of Ohio.

Review:

A thorough, serious, and scholarly analysis of the impact of recent global economic tendencies on the Caribbean. . . . For those wishing intelligent and well-documented research and commentary on the micro- and macro-consequences of unfettered economic globalization, including those who support such processes but are willing to consider fair criticism, this collection will be extremely useful. (Choice)

Klak's thinking is original and refreshing. . . . [His] first chapter ['Thirteen theses on globalization and neoliberalism'] is worth the price of the book. . . . Whether one teaches or studies suburban U.S. communities, historic preservation in the Islamic realm, or housing markets in China, each thought-provoking thesis lends itself to other important issues related to our shrinking world. Scholars will welcome these insights and instructors will easily be able to draw a lecture out of each thesis. . . . [The book] has a master bibliography that will serve as a benchmark in development and Caribbean studies readings for years to come. . . . Human geography and development studies are all the richer because of this stellar work. (Annals Of The Aag)

This volume examines the ways political, economic, and social geographic factors are affecting the development of the region. The book's original approach should be of great interest to geographers, economists, and other scholars who are interested in the Caribbean or postmodern processes. (Gary Elbow)

...the case study chapters assemble a lot of new information and will certainly be cited in other studies. (Anthony Payne Commonwealth & Comparative Politics)

This volume provides a thorough, serious, and scholarly analysis of the impact of the recent global economic tendencies on the Carribean. (J.L. Dietz Chocie, October, 1998, Vol. 36 N0. 2)

A wide-ranging critique of the neoliberal agenda. The authors generate an imaginative argument for renewing a core-periphery framework in order to understand the economic, political, social and cultural position of small countries in the developing world. (Bob Gwynne)

The merit of the essays is that they raise many valid questions... (Wolfgang Grassl The Journal Of Development Studies)

Klak has put together a great book about the economic development of Caribban states. It respects the diversity of the people and their policies as they respond, both individually and collectively, to their economic challenges and adversities. (R. Michael Smith Inernational Social Science Review)

A well-organized and well-written assessment of linkages between states and societies in the Caribbean and the internaional political economy. . . . There is a good balance between description and analysis, and the discussion is both thematic and country-specific. . . . This is an academic text with considerable policy relevance. . . . I, therefore, commend it not just to students and scholars interested in Caribbean economics and political economy, but to policy makers and managers both within and outside the Caribbean. (Griffith, Ivelaw L. Political Studies)
