Editors: Barbara S. Balboni and Joseph O. Palacio; Authors: Jaime J. Awe, Candy Gonzalez, Crucita Ken, Melanie McField and Nadia Bood, Antoinette Moore, Joseph O. Palacio, Michael J. Pisani, Robert B. Richardson, Michael Rosberg, Michael Stone, Jerome Straughan, Richard Wilk, Colin A. Young and Robert Horwitch; Number of pages: 334; Size 6.5Óx 9

In September 2006, Belize celebrated 25 years of Independence. In this volume, distinguished economists, conservationists, lawyers, sociologists and other scholars -all longtime observers of Belize and its people- take stock. In most cases, they present for the first time ever essays that focus on Belize, a country that is at once deceptively uncomplicated and surprisingly complex.

The essays are eminently readable, but provocative and challenging. The authors' in -depth analysis and evaluation of data, policies, laws, and practices from the economic, environmental, societal, and cultural sectors are just the beginning. Policy-makers, decisionmakers, stakeholders, and concerned citizens are beckoned to use the essays to assess and evaluate the authors' findings, appraise the current status of the country, and examine their proposals, initiatives, challenges, problems, and promises, mindful of what has transpired and what the country and its people will face in the next quarter century. The essays are a bid for independence, independent thinking, analysis, and evaluation.
