In all multi-ethnic states, the problems of equal distribution of resources and the symbolic representation of ethnic communities takes centre stage infusing and defining all public discourse. In this book, this problem - how it is manifested and accommodated - is systematically and empirically analyzed focusing on one case-study in the Caribbean. Ethnic competition and tension prowl through Trinidad and Tobago at everyturn, often threatening the stability of the state. This work addresses both ethnic domination and its accommodation, and contains valuable lessons for similar states
