Barbados has long been severely criticized––or ignored––because of its adherence to British political and cultural traditions. Much of this censure and neglect was a result of its having had the most racially segregated social relations among the Caribbean nations. Paradoxically, the island has evolved to have the best educated populace and the most politically stable and economically open of societies in the Caribbean. The growth of a black business bourgeoisie is one of the paramount features of the island’s modernization.

Keywords:   British cultural traditions, political stability, racial segregation, black business bourgeoisie, modernizatoin, open society, economic stability, educated populace
