Two Steps Forward Two Steps Backward

Product Category: Non-Fiction


The book Two Steps Forward, Two Steps Backward is a study in contrasts. Essentially the author paints a striking contrast between two political administrations in Jamaica. The PNP is one that has ­created a society of fantasy and “better now” without the means to achieve better. On the other hand the JLP’s administration has been one of discipline, order and positive development.’ Running fourth through the narrative is the contrast between the administrations of Michael Manley and P.J. Patterson with that of Edward Seaga. But dominating the narrative is the picture that is painted of Edward Seaga, politician, statesman, visionary and achiever. Interspersed are the details of a number of national horror stories - Green Bay, Orange Street - which need to be told and are told with the eye of a keen legal brain. Kent Gammon’s book will add an important perception to some of the events v some positive and some negative -since Jamaica became independent in 1962.
