The West on Trial: The Fight for Guyana's Freedom

Jagan, Cheddi, The West on trial: the fight for Guyana's freedom, London: Michael Joseph, 1966.

Reviewed in The Journal of Developing Areas.

Excerpt of review by Krishna Persaud:
Although Dr. Jagan has written voluminously, “The West on Trial” remains his most enduring work, and it is his political testament. It is the unrivalled and definitive study of Guyana’s fight for self-determination, against overwhelming odds. But it is also an invaluable resource for students of Guyana’s early history. The rivalry among the Dutch, French and British for control of the territory is chronicled with the flair and intellectual rigour of a consummate historian.
