Coke Factory Strike 1979: The Grenada Chronicles (Paperback)
A timeline of the 1979 revolution from earliest origins to tragic end. The revolutionary period in Grenada grew from the legacy of Eric Gairy to Maurice Bishop, from the 1970s through 19 October 1983. The Grenada Chronicles contain a detailed, day-by-day chronology of the events and people involved in the time of Gairy and the People's Revolutionary Government reflected from print sources. The Grenada Chronicles aim to be accurate in fact and in context. In order to assure accuracy, the source of information contained in this volume is stated. The limits and biases of the print source are varied. Sources cited favor original documents. The motive for this work is to provide information on the Grenada Revolution with no attempt, either implicit or manipulative, to present a political interest. A key reason to dwell upon the Grenada Revolution is that it needs to be told; to be passed on to the next generation. The story needs telling both for the form it took, but also for the contemporary lessons it can give. The resolution of the lessons taught is that such a tragic outcome might never happen again. The realities of the human condition are that malice and hope are strong forces. The Grenada Chronicles tell the extraordinary struggle of the youthful New Jewel Movement comrades and their evolving struggles with human frailty.
