About this Item

Paperback. 273 pages. Power, Politics and Performance outlines a convincing case that the best route for the optimum development of Small States requires the dynamics of a Partnership Approach with its citizens, regional institutions and the global community. Most Hon. Percival Patterson, ON, OCC, PC, QCFormer Prime Minister of JamaicaThe perception of politics as an obstacle to the advancement of the Caribbean must be removed. In Power Politics and Performance, Winston Dookeran argues that for meaningful change, politics must be visionary and pursued with principled purpose. He argues for partnership through regionalism and explores the issues facing small developing states and their sovereignty. Dookeran identifies the imperatives of financial stability and the structures required for building a knowledge-based economy. Power, Politics and Performance focuses on key issues of leadership and the political processes suggesting that ultimately, leadership is about finding solutions, and such solutions require radical transformation of political parties and political institutions. The book examines and analyses specific problems and distortions in small states and the challenge of building effective leadership while providing a blueprint for the way forward. Power Politics and Performance is a welcomed addition to the Caribbean Integration arena and sets the stage for a paradigm shift in the governance of small states.
