Towards an Alternative For Central America and the Caribbean

Edited by George Irvin and Xabier Gorostiaga

Alien & Unwin, 1985, 273 pp.

The essays here are revised versions of papers presented at a policy workshop sponsored by the Institute for Social Studies in The Hague. They cover the Central America-Caribbean geopolitical crisis, regional economic structures, and aspects of political change. The central theme is the need for alternative policies at the regional level, adequate to withstand the forces of fragmentation and external pressure.
