Serbin, a veteran Caribbean-watcher (Central University of Caracas, Venezuela) originally published this extended essay in Nueva Sociedad (Caracas) in 1988 for the South American Commission for Peace, Regional Security, and Democracy. Venezuela, more than any other continental state in Latin America, has engaged itself with the course of Caribbean affairs, and this book reflects that concern. Serbin examines past patterns of indigenous and exogenous forces in the region's development to ascertain the prospects for autonomous regional development through economic cooperation and/or a "zone of peace" that can insulate the region from Cold War intrusions. The focus is primarily on the non-Latin micro states (i.e., the Caribbean Community's members and Surinam). The novel perspective and careful analysis make this a useful addition to specialized collections, although it is not as exploratory as The Caribbean and World Politics, ed. by J. Heine and L. Manigat (CH, Oct'88), Dependency Under Challenge, ed. by A. Payne and P. Sutton (CH, Oct'84), or Militarization in the Non-Hispanic Caribbean, ed. by A. Young and D.E. Phillips (CH, Feb'87). -E. M.
