Subject: Jamaican Tourism under Democratic Socialism

Greetings Everyone:
Growing up in Jamaica in the 70's under Manley, I often heard as part of the 
circulating oppositional discourse that after the nationalism of Bauxite and 
the acquisition of several formerly foreign-owned hotels, the word put out by 
Washington was that Manley had to be punished. The result: the refusal to "sell 
Jamaica" by tour operators and the refusal to by Jamaican Bauxite on the 
world market.
I am more interested in the first narrative about tourism and its decline in 
the 70's and 80's as part of a wider strategy of isolating and punishing the 
Manley Regime. Can anyone suggest work that documents this, especially work 
that traces the numbers and percentages of this decline?
Many thanks in advance.
