Lawrence Vernon, Author

“My intention was to put all the information on the political parties at that time into one book. I started out by providing this information to students and so I decided to document it for myself so that people don’t have to come to ask to diverse information and I have it in one book. So that was the reason for documenting it. I purposely made is reader friendly so that the average person on the street could gather information from it. I included end notes and footnotes so more information is given about what is in the text. I believe that students, high school students especially, the history students at SJC and Wesley High School can really benefit from reading it because if you really want to know what political history is all about and people did not know that there were twenty six political parties that came up, this is an eye-opener for most people.”


The book which was published by the National Institute of Culture and History is being sold for thirty dollars.
