Envisioning Caribbean Futures
- Published: July 2007
Employing critical analysis of Caribbean intellectual thought and of the postcolonial political economy, this book proposes a manifesto for the future. It suggests a form of participatory reorganization without, necessarily, dismantling the fundamentals of formal democratic organization.
"The book is a manifesto for dealing with the crisis of globalization in the postcolony through reorganization of the system, structure and processes of governance and through the reformulation of economic organization toward forms of economic democracy...There is much to engage with in Meeks's book, which is just what superlative scholarship is all about."
"This new book, from one of the region's leading thinkers in social and political thought, breaks new ground in critical analysis and prescription. Meeks...points to the shortcomings of the current neo-liberal economic model and proposes for a new paradigm of development that is democratic, inclusive and empowering of the majority of the population. Deserves to be widely read and debated."
