This book marks the second stellar effort of Professors Benn and Hall and other contributors, to address the critical issues facing the Caribbean nations both individually and collectively. It examines efforts at uniting the Caribbean such as Caricom and the implications for the survival of the region.
The Caribbean Community: Beyond Survival describes and analyses the problems of the region and also deals comprehensively with prospects for future survival. It focuses on the Integration Movement of the Caribbean and the fact that the region has been able to overcome threats posed to its existence and create conditions for continued progress. The book is divided into five sections, which span an outline of the various views of skepticism and predictions of failure for the Community, to a focus on the change in the institutional framework of the community and subsequent sections deal with the question of what is required by CARICOM if it is to survive in the new economic dispensation and the prospects for the survival and progress of the Community.
