This book deals with the paradigm that drove the engagement to create LNG production and export plants in Trinidad and Tobago and Venezuela in the late 20th and early 21st century, the geo-politics that dominated the process of LNG capacity creation in both Trinidad and Tobago and Venezuela and finally it deals with the collapse of the paradigm and its impact on Trinidad and Tobago and Venezuela in the 21st century. The book presents a comparative analysis of two entirely different and contradictory paradigms of exploitation of national energy resources namely that of Trinidad and Tobago and Venezuela and the game changer that the US shale gas revolution is.
This book deals with three major developments within the illicit drug trade of the Caribbean Basin that not only changed the nature of the illicit trade but has expanded the expanse of the trade as it now impacts Africa and Asia making it truly globalised. The three major developments dealt with are: the trafficking jump to West Africa by Caribbean Basin drug trafficking organisations, the rise to dominance of the Mexican cartels in the illicit trade of the Caribbean Basin and the evolution and nature of Caribbean gangland and its organic links to the illicit drug trade.
This work is a deconstruction of Salafi Jihadi discourse in the 21st century with special emphasis on the works in English of Muhammad Maqdisi and Anwar al-Awlaki. The work reveals the diversity of strategic positions that exist with reference to war with/on the West, the role of the Muslim minority of the West in this war and the fact that the prime focus of Salafi Jihadi praxis is hegemony over the Muslim lands. The prime focus of Salafi Jihadi strategy in the 21st century is not war on/with the West but the purging of the apostatesfrom the Muslim lands. War with/on the West is then necessay because of the hegemony of the West over the Muslim lands in alliance with the apostates.The most potent reality exposed is a Salafi Jihadi apocalyptic end time discourse that drives extremism especially in the discourse of Anwar al-Awlaki.
This work is a deconstruction of the political discourse of politicians in Trinidad and Tobago from the 1950's to the present. This deconstruction has revealed a discourse of racist hegemony is the basis for political mobilisation in Trinidad and Tobago as it frames a mental image of a hegemonic race wielding state power over a dominated race consigned to the wilderness of opposition politics. The resources of the state exist then for the benefit of the hegemonic race and those who conceive of self as belonging to races in competition for state resources must then do their political duty to ensure the hegemony of their race. Politics has nothing to do with governance, personal and social development.
This work explodes myths on the decolonization process in former British colonies of Trinidad and Tobago and Ghana. Myths that masked the fact that the British colonial overlord with the full support of their local lackeys stage managed the process to ensure that compliant regimes were put in place as the inheritors of Independence from the British. Tubal Uriah Butler was systematically destroyed as a political leader to end his threat to the political order as he was not of the required material to be an inheritor of Independence. Kwame Nkrumah was fit to rule Ghana but he was subsequently removed in 1966. The social orders of Trinidad and Tobago and Ghana have been deeply impacted by British machinations on the road to Independence to this day.
This book deals with threats to the sustainability of specific Caribbean states in the face of the concerted threats posed by the illicit drug trade, the illicit gun trade, human smuggling and the sex trade. These concerted threats have impacted the epidemiology of HIV/AIDS in the Caribbean creating a conjunction of forces that is now the single most potent threat to Caribbean state survival and sustainability.
This is the final text of the trilogy consisting of "Jihad in Trinidad and Tobago" and "Exiting a Racist Worldview." The text presents a deconstruction of Islamic discourse with specific reference to jihad (military engagement) and the shahid (martyr). The Al Qaeda discourse of the greater kufr is deconstructed to expose its antecedents in militarist Islamic discourse born out of the contradiction between Islam and western capitalist colonial imperialism. Primary to the development of the discourse of military engagement with the west is the discourse of Pakistani thinkers deconstructed in the text. The discourse of Al Qaeda is then the product of contradiction between Islam and western imperialism and hegemony. Thereby constituting the most potent threat to Islam since the crusades as manifested in the discourse of Al Qaeda.
"Cocaine and Heroin Trafficking in the Caribbean" exposes the nature and structures of illicit drug trafficking in the Caribbean. A complex reality is presented which is built upon the lies and deceptions of the war on drugs, the complicity of the elites of the Caribbean with the illicit trade and the failure of the agencies charged with interdicting the illicit trade in the Caribbean. The escalating levels of societal violence, instability, of crime and the stark contrasts of opulence in the midst of grinding poverty all linked to the illicit drug trade are dealt with. The underlying reality of failed states that facilitate illicit drug trafficking in the Caribbean with a future of violence and instability is the dominant reality of the Caribbean in the 21st century exposed and explained in this text.
This book is the second volume in a trilogy of works which commenced with "Jihad in Trinidad and Tobago." It is in fact a journey of liberation traced through a series of texts of western discourse culminating in the discursive rupture that the works of Michel Foucault constituted. Liberation is then premised upon exiting the racist worldview of the North Atlantic via/towards alternate non-western discourse one of which is Islamic discourse. The third volume of the trilogy deals with the discursive origins of Al Qaeda within the ambit of Islamic discourse (forthcoming).
The book is a deconstruction of the political discourse of Simbhoonath Capildeo the progenitor of Hindu nationalist discourse in Trinidad and Tobago.
Capildeo's Hindu nationalism is premised upon a rootedness in Trinidad and Tobago, a fervent praxis premised on bhakti (devotion) towards creating a discourse of Sanatan Dharma that was relevant to life in the west as a Hindu that was sustainable, and finally a political praxis that was demonstrably anti- racist and egalitarian in the tradition of democratic socialism.
