Summary
"Why did the world's strongest power intervene militarily in the tiny Commonwealth Caribbean Island of Grenada in October 1983? This book focuses on US-Grenada relations between 1979 and 1983 set against the wider historical context of US-Caribbean Basin relations. It presents a study of US policy during the Carter and Reagan presidencies, and the deterioration of relations with the Marxist-Leninist People's Revolution Government (PRG) of Grenada. It considers the murderous internal power struggle that destroyed the PRG, and the decision-making process that resulted in a joint US-Caribbean military intervention."--BOOK JACKET
