About the Book

This book is the sequel to the book entitled Parris Electoral Conjectures and Governance in Guyana. Accordingly, the book’s best impact may well be most easily experienced if it is read after one has perused its immediate predecessor. Nevertheless, the book is quite capable of standing on its own as a rewarding exercise in mental titillation. Anyone who may be interested in the issues related to governance of a relatively newly independent country, whose demography has derived from the mixing of ethnicities, should find the book interesting. The author’s tactic of presenting conjectures, and then following his nose in the sense of being prepared to go mentally towards destinations that logic suggests, yields interesting conundrums. The mix of suggested resolutions of problems and abandonment of paradoxes posing as problems is a stimulating concoction.
