This chapter examines the period from 1970–1982, during which formal independence was attained and an attempt at socialist-oriented radical nationalism was pursued by the St. Lucia Labor Party. The discussions cover the prospects for economic development that underpinned the movement toward formal independence in St. Lucia; independence and the radical nationalist challenge; the limits of radical nationalism; and neoliberal globalization and the defeat of radical nationalism.

Keywords:   independence, Labor Party, radical nationalism, economic development, neoliberal globalization
