About the Book

The value of this Memoir lies in the objective presentation of several key historical events in specific countries where the author lived and worked, ranging from Canada through Africa and Europe to the Caribbean. George Eaton, Ph.D., was a founding faculty member of York University, Toronto, and at his retirement was Professor Emeritus & Senior Scholar. He was a man known for his clear, objective perspective, and his unshakeable sense of integrity and honour. This Memoir offers extraordinary insights into the inner workings and behind-the-scene activities of post-colonial African and Caribbean economies and their emerging national identities. Eaton’s seminal works entitled The Development of Political Unionism (1961) and Alexander Bustamante & Modern Jamaica (1975) have both been critically acclaimed.
