Flambeau essays published in book edited by King, King and John


In a release on Tuesday, author Cheryl L.A. King announced the publication of the book : “Search for Identity: Essays on St. Vincent and the Grenadines.”

The book, which is essentially a re-publication of essays and commentaries on the social, economic and political life of St. Vincent and the Grenadines, is edited by Dr. Baldwin King, Dr. Kenneth John and Cheryl L. A. King.{{more}}

The essays and commentaries first appeared in the local “Flambeau” magazine up to 1968. The authors are all Vincentian-born except for two invited contributors. The editors believe that many of the essays still have such relevance to today’s Vincentian society that re-publication is entirely appropriate.

For example, Clem Iton’s “Of Colour of Skin and St. Vincent” is as topical today as it was in 1965. Kenneth John’s “The Political Crisis in St. Vincent” is quite insightful. Wallace Dear’s “Constitutional Development of St. Vincent” is a “must read” in the context of the Constitutional Review which is taking place right now.
