From Region, Race, and Reconstruction: Essays in Honor of C. Morgan Kousser and James M.
In this present despatch I have the honour to try to bring the picture to date, and to give preliminary comments on the constitutional questions which must be solved this year. Jagan and the People's Progressive Party have continued in power.
They have faced difficult financial circumstances mainly owing to the fall in the world price of sugar and the recession in the aluminium industry. They have met mounting and often unfair opposition with which they have made little attempt to compromise. The Ministers maintain their own views and prejudices but have been able to work with the officials in Executive Council and in their Ministries and departments.
They are not always experienced or practical or objective in their ideas. They would be in many more difficulties without the frank and impartial comments, the help and advice of the officials.
In Executive Council their have been a number of exhausting differences of opinion; but no malice remains afterwards; both sides have been eager to avoid major crises.
In the Ministers' favour it must be recorded that they work very long hours both in their offices and public duties and in explaining Government and party policy and actions throughout the length of the coastlands.
That this working partnership is being maintained in the face of all the criticism and suspicions is a considerable achievement. I very much admire my senior officials.

Major decisions are made to his dictation in an inner council usually consisting of himself, his wife, Mr. The party executive is then required to endorse these decisions. Those who are brave enough to resist or question are discredited among the rest of the party.

But the party organisation, particularly in the rural areas, is a very long way ahead of its rivals. There is no change in Dr. He fills his head with Marxist politico-economic theories.
They seem to mean more to him than present realities. Perhaps he has faith that world Communism will triumph even in this hemisphere early enough for him to try out his theories.
But with all his theories and arguments, and with all his obsessions and conceits, he has not insisted on any action which seems calculated purposefully to disrupt the present economy and way of life.
The minor pinpricks have been all in keeping with much publicised past party manifestos. It has been noticeable that although the local economy is still buoyant, and all existing projects have been continued, since he came to power there has been no new major investment in the country.
It is still difficult to say however whether this return to a previous rate in commercial and industrial development after the sudden flowering of alumina and manganese and oil exploration is due to the uncertainties of investors about Dr.This article traces the historical forebears of a ‘sociology of ignorance’ and explores ignorance as a social concept before turning to examine precedents and increasing attention to ignorance scholarship on racism, racial domination, and racialized non-knowing.
