Distant Neighbors in the Caribbean: The Dominican Republic and Jamaica in Comparative Perspective

Synopsis

This study in comparative politics provides a comparison and contrast in the political development of two countries that have divergent historical influences. This work furthers our understanding of both nations by pulling together themes and patterns common to both the Hispanic and British traditions. The authors develop a single framework for analyzing patterns in colonial legacies, the gaining of independence, formation of political institutions, the emergence of political leadership, and the creation and implementation of policies in the two states. The background and contemporary developments of both the Dominican Republic and Jamaica are treated within the context of this framework.
