Religion and the Cold War in Guyana

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

This article examines the impact the politics of the Cold War has had on Guyana, a small peripheral country in South America and the role of religion as an under-researched variable. The confrontation between the mainly Christian Churches and the Left in Guyana in the 1950-60s is a major feature of that country's political history and the politics of that era still resonate in the society today.
