Guyana: History without mercy

MediaCritic links to a “brutal historical account of Guyana”. An excerpt: “The present-day Republic of Guyana is an insignificant remnant of the old British Empire, the only possession Britain ever held on the mainland of South America, uneasily resting between Venezuela and Brazil and adjoining two other fragments of European colonial empires. . . . Guyana has no great economic or strategic value.”
