Shattered Dreams

A Political Odyssey in Port-Independent St Lucia


An often thrilling first-hand account of island politics in the era after independence. The St Lucia Labour Party (SLP) comes to power after 15 yeards in the wilderness and hardly settles into office before it is rent asunder by internal bickering over its leadership. In less than three years, the party is out of office again and both it and its main characters are fighting for their respective political lives. SHATTERED DREAMS is the story of the ups and downs of political activism and the personalities and events that shaped the emergence of the Caribbean island, for whose possession the English and French fought some of the bloodiest in this hemisphere in the 18th century. In SHATTERED DREAMS, Josie attempts to show how the rise to power in sister island Grenada of the People’s Revolutionary Government (PRG) under Marxist Maurice Bishop in 1979 influenced super power involvement in the affairs of the Caribbean islands and could have contributed handsomely to the demise of both the SLP in the St Lucia and the PRG in Grenada.
