Politics in a Half Made Society tells the story of contemporary politics in the twin island of Trinidad and Tobago. The book provides a narrative and analytical account beginning in 1925, when the first elections were held, and continuing up to 2001 with the two major political parties in a historical deadlock for which formal constitutional arrangement did no cater. The book is divided into four sections, each underlining the important stages of Trinidads political history, Part One  Prelude to Self-government  deals with Trinidads move towards the establishment of party politics between 1925 and 1953; Part Two  The Long Reign of Eric Williams  recounts the political shrewdness of this prime minister and the peculiar challenges he faced while in power; Part Three  Paved with Good Intentions: The Rise and Fall of the National Alliance for Reconstruction  examines the failure of the Chambers administration to sustain the political and economic gains made during the Williams years, covers the attempted coup of 1990 and assesses the NARs performance; Part Four  Toward Stalemate: Structural Adjustment, Indian Arrival and Slim Majorities  looks at the political configuration of the 1990s after structural adjustment and Basdeo Pandays coming to power.
