dc.description.abstract This is part two of a special edition of Caribbean Report which provides a round-up of key stories from 1997 across the Caribbean region. It was a politically active time in the region as two countries, Guyana and Jamaica, held general elections in December. In Britain, the new British Labor government hosted the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting (CHOGM) in the Scottish city, Edinburgh. Orin Gordon attended the summit and commented on the heavy security. In football, Jamaica's Reggae Boyz became the first English-speaking Caribbean side to qualify for the World Cup to be held in France in mid-1998. Hugh Crosskill examines how the team's success has boosted the national psyche of the Jamaican people. Jamaica's qualification for the finals has produced unprecedented scenes of celebrations across the length and breadth of the country. en_US
