Autor: Dookeran, Winston Descripción física: 116 p. Editorial: ECLAC Fecha: agosto 2018 Signatura: LC/WAS/TS.2018/3


This book compiles and adapts different chapters written by the author during the last decades on the topic of Caribbean development. On the one hand, the document provides the reader with the opportunity to travel in time acknowledging the evolution of academia, paradigms, and frameworks regarding the Caribbean. On the other hand, it shows the reader how many of the action plans and strategies suggested through the years are still relevant and how many of the challenges and structures of Caribbean nations have not changed radically over the years, once again stressing the urgent need for action.
The document covers a wide array of topics within Caribbean growth and development, as it also takes on different approaches. The first couple of chapters are rich in historical backgrounds, providing information and analysis bringing the reader up to date with the different Caribbean challenges, while the last couple of chapters are mostly focused on strategies and action plans to achieve the objectives that had already been identified earlier on.
