March 12, 1979, was the end of a pivotal period in Grenada’s modern contemporary history, which began with Gairy’s arrival in December, 1949, and ended with his departure from Grenada in March, 1979. This chapter discusses the rise and eventual fall of Eric Gairy, the rise of Maurice Bishop as a public figure, leading to the consolidation of the Grenada Revolution in 1979. It weaves together three decades of authoritarianism, conflict and resistance that shaped Grenada’s historical path.

Keywords:   Authoritarianism, Conflict, Eric Gairy, Maurice Bishop, Resistance
