Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“For anyone with an interest in either the Caribbean or US foreign policy in the region, this book is a must-read. This . . . is a comprehensive, meticulously researched and well-written examination of the period leading up the invasion of Grenada. It draws together a very impressive range of perspectives to provide a coherent and convincing argument. Williams’ original contribution is to highlight the nuances of foreign policy making within the US administration.”—Jourbanal of Latin American Studies
