Item description for A Spade is Still a Spade: Essays on Crime and The Politics of Jamaica by Bernard Headley...
A Spade is Still a Spade: Essays on Crime and The Politics of Jamaica An exposition on the Jamaican crime scene. The author expresses the view that, despite the growing drug culture, this crime scene does not approximate to being, or becoming, narco-terrorism. He says that the drug culture in Jamaica provides economic benefits to the drug dons who control whole communities, but that it is not affiliated to a cause, political or otherwise - a fundemental feature of narco-terrorism. A careful reading of this book is a must for those persons who wish to understand the Jamaican crime scene and what needs to be done to bring it under control.
