Edward Phillip George Seaga is one of the most outstanding Jamaican politicians - with a reputation for creativity, controversy and courage. His autobiography offers a unique insight into the emergence of modern Jamaica, a journey characterized by idealism and intrigue, conflict and triumph. The young protege of legendary National Hero, founder and leader of the Jamaica Labour Party, Sir Alexander Bustamante, Harvard graduate Edward Seaga was drawn to the roots of Jamaican folk society as a research student of the life of the poor in rural and inner-city communities. He rose dramatically through the political ranks to leadership of the JLP in 15 years, leading the party for the next 30 years. As the youngest parliamentarian, he gave notice in his signature speech on the 'haves and have-nots' that his mission was to pull up the poor without pulling down the rich - in a country with little wealth both capital and labour are mutually dependent for success. This was Bustamante's underlying pragmatic philosophy too. In 1980, the JLP stormed to election victory and Seaga became Prime Minister. His immediate task was to tackle the immense problems inherited from the Manley PNP government, a challenge that dominated Seaga's time in office. His detailed strategy for economic and social revival together with his analysis of the ongoing issues that confront Jamaica today provide the framework of this second volume of autobiography, closing with an absorbing account of Seaga's final years as leader of the JLP and the moving occasion of his farewell to the Parliament he served for so long.
