Overview

Why did the world's strongest power intervene militarily in the tiny Commonwealth Caribbean island of Grenada in October 1983? This book focuses on United States-Grenada relations between 1979 and 1983 set against the wider historical context of US-Caribbean Basin relations. It presents an in-depth study of US policy during the Carter and Reagan presidencies and the deterioration of relations with the Marxist-Leninist People's Revolution Government (PRG) of Grenada. It considers in detail the murderous internal power struggle that destroyed the PRG and the decisionmaking process that resulted in a joint US-Caribbean military intervention.

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." - Journal of Latin American Studies
