Belize In Focus

by Ian Peedle
£7.99   paperback  Latin America Bureau (1999)

Belize In Focus by Ian Peedle The small nation of Belize has long been separated from its Central American neighbours by history, language and culture. Formerly a British colony, this English-speaking country has traditionally looked towards the Caribbean islands rather than Central America for its economic and political links. Yet Belize's enclave status is increasingly a thing of the past, as trade, cross-border migration and a booming eco-tourism industry break down old barriers and put pressure on the country's social structures and natural resources. As Belize's agricultural mainstays face an uncertain future, the country has opted for "green tourism" and service industries as economic alternatives. Beaches, coral reefs and rainforest are now at the forefront of the Belizian economy, a development with serious implications for the country's environment and indigenous communities. 'Belize In Focus' explores the history, economy, environment and culture of this spectacular country.
