A solid review of integration theory and its application to the Caribbean, with full reference to the many obstacles-political and economic nationalism in particular. There is much discussion of "widening," which implies a purely market approach, as opposed to "deepening," which points to meaningful development through integration of production. An inherent obstacle is noted: "The logical relationship between widening and deepening is such that the further one goes down one path the harder it is to move down the other."
