Special thanks are owing to the following persons and organisations:Mr I Douglas of the Caribbean Association of Industry and CommerceDr R Buckmire of the Caribbean Development BankThe Caribbean Development Bank for the use of their libraryThe Statistical Office of BarbadosThe Caribbean News AgencyMrs L Carruthers and Miss E Parris who helped Ivan Waterman by typing manuscriptsMiss C E Fisher and Mr M J Fisher who helped Janey Fisher with researchCharonne Prosser who copy-edited the manuscript and read the proof on behalf of the publishers.The publishers would like to thank David Gilbert, Michelle Rhone, Vashty Gooding, Agatha Joseph, Vassel Reynolds, Salomie Ramsay-Williams and Dwight Dean for their assistance in compiling this edition.CSEC Social Studies is designed for students in the upper forms of secondary schools in the Caribbean, especially for those studying for the CXC examination in Social Studies.While the topics covered in this book follow, as closely as possible, those set out in the syllabus for the CXC Social Studies, it must be remembered that Social Studies is a dynamic discipline reflecting changes in the social, political and economic environment which are taking place constantly. Individual research and awareness of current affairs are important aspects of the subject which students must employ in order to cover the whole syllabus adequately.The teacher of Social Studies should be a guide and facilitator rather than a mere giver of information, since students need an opportunity to find things out for themselves if they are to understand the topics fully. The activities in this book are intended to foster the required skills, attitudes and values for Social Studies and to act as a stimulus for further enquiry.I L WJ F ACKNOWLEDGEMENTSPREFACE 9780230427693_text (16.11.12).indd 421/11/2012 10:58
