Dr. Rigobert’s new book a “must read” for scholars

On Wednesday, April 3, Dr. Gale T C Rigobert launched her book entitled ‘Bridging the Digital Divide? Prospects for Caribbean Development in the New Techno-economic Paradigm’ at the Hunter J. Francois Library, Sir Arthur Lewis Community College.

Much of the material contained in the book is extracted from the substantive arguments purported in her doctoral dissertation which bears the same title as the book.

Dr. Rigobert is adamant that the book is meant to provoke deeper interrogation of some of the core issues raised, rather than provide any set of truths about the phenomena discussed therein. The real value of the book, according to her, is that it raises provocative questions about many social and political phenomena that are incorrectly assumed as ‘givens’ in the politics of technology and development, especially in the context of small island developing states (SIDS) such as those of the Caribbean.

Dr. Rigobert offers policy prescriptions born out of a careful analysis of the historical and political evolution of the Caribbean, and the role which it occupies in the international division of labour (IDL). Any discussion on technology and development in the context of the Caribbean, she contends, is necessarily incomplete without adequate deconstruction of, and appreciation for the dialectical exchanges between and among states in the global political economy.

The book is a must read and scholars as well as students will find it thought-provoking and enlightening. Upon reflection and in Dr. Rigobert’s own words, the best outcome after one would have read her book, is to be so intellectually stimulated, that they too would be moved not only to feed their intellectual curiosity but to deepen the discourse which the book has initiated.

The book is available in local bookstores.

  3. All of a sudden Rigobert thinks she is all that. Where were you before. You could have done all this before coming into politics. You are just trying everything in your power, so people will say well yes you can be the leader of the opposition and then become first female Prime Minister of St. Lucia. You are not a down to earth person. I would go for Janine Compton anyday. Janine is a genuine person, but not you with your different accents. It's true about the saying it is never too late, but go and make a round. Lets all hope that Hon Stephen King stays in his position as leader and not you Gail Rigobert. I prefer Steve.
