Through the Political Glass Ceiling Now on Kindle

Book on TT First Woman PM …now on Kindle
The socio-cultural analysis of Trinidad and Tobago’s politics in the book, Through the Political Glass Ceiling – Race to Prime Ministership by Trinidad and Tobago’s First Female by Kris Rampersad is now available on Kindle.
Persons can download copies of the book for Kindle, through free international wireless delivery via Amazon Whispernet at a special celebratory second anniversary price, representing almost a 70 percent discount.
This is in celebration of the second year of the Prime Ministership of Kamla Persad-Bissessar, author Kris Rampersad stated.
The book traces Persad-Bissessar’s journey as the first female Attorney General, leader of the Opposition, and then to leader of the government, through her speeches. It locates the origins within local government politics to premiership with analyses and contexts that capture the nail-biting moments to the landslide electoral victory into government of the female-led People’s Partnership in May 2010.
“When I launched the book, I indicated that it will begin an enterprise to open up the Trinidad and Tobago publishing industry and capture the advantages of new technologies to bring more affordable and accessible reading to the public. Through the Political Glass Ceiling links grassroots voter issues to governance, leadership and policy-making and is an attempt to open the eyes of the electorate to the power of franchise they hold.
The introduction to the book, gives a unique cultural interpretation of the cut and thrust of Trinidad and Tobago’s politics around the context of David Rudder’s succinct assessment that “how we vote is not how we party.”
Cover design by Simone Marcelle and Sonja Wong.
