In Praise of Jamaica
Publisher : George Meikle
In Praise of Jamaica celebrates the achievements of the Jamaican people - both home and abroad - invoking themes of the island's natural beauty and the strength and courage of its people.

The Story Behind This Book
On the author's return from Canada to Jamaica in 1989, it took a few years to re-focus on what it meant to be Jamaican. He then began to research the factors that differentiated jamaica, a small practicing democracy, from other countries with a similar colonial heritage. "In Praise of Jamaica" attempts to answer the questions -- what is uniquely Jamaican and why, and has the country achieved culturally since its independence in 1962.
