"This is a scholarly and well-written study of Edward Seaga and manages to capture the tremendously complex nature of his personality as it critically explores his remarkable contribution to modern Jamaica. There is, perhaps, no other politician surrounded by as many myths, half-truths and falsehoods in Jamaican politics as Edward Seaga. Bryan carefully unearths the records to remind us collectively of Seaga's enormous contribution in shaping contemporary Jamaica in so many spheres: culture, finance, tourism, education and community building.... It reflects the craft of a mature historian at the height of his powers providing new and nuanced insights into the life of one of the most important and enigmatic characters in modern Jamaican politics." - Brian Meeks, Professor of Social and Political Change and Director of the Centre for Caribbean Thought, University of the West Indies, Jamaica"
