Notes:
The underlying thesis of this paper is that contemporary Caribbean economy and society maintain certain basic structural features rooted in slavery and the plantation system. It traces changes that have occurred in the economic, demographic, educational, social structural, and political realms, particularly during the 1960s. The picture that emerges is one of "change and continuity."
