Overview

A compelling exposé on Jamaica's roller coaster journey through five and a half decades of independence. Ride along on this journey to discover interesting information that addresses the following:


  • The role of Jamaica's Prime Ministers in shaping its independent journey
  • The three political eras that they fit in
  • Factors that have stymied Jamaica's progress
  • Practical solutions and revolutionary ideas to reroute Jamaica's journey on a path of progress


Author Jermel Shim provides a perspective of Jamaica's turbulent journey that will motivate Jamaicans at home and abroad to make sacrifices that will help make Jamaica a better place for all.

"The Long Road to Progress for Jamaica is not a doomsday book by any means. In fact, in spite of what Shim identifies as the unerring truths and conclusions and inevitably sad results of wrong moves made for most of our independence journey, this compelling book is not short of realistic optimism or a practical search for solutions." Lance Neita, Jamaica Observer Columnist
