'...a number of issues clearly show the foci of Seecharan’s research and concerns: the millennial El Dorado, the elusiveness of a Guyanese nation and identity, Guyanese postwar politics, and, of course, cricket. As he puts it, “the writing of history ... must not be shackled by the imperatives of any cause. The historian should not have to look over his shoulder, and must feel free to slaughter sacred cows, if necessary” (p. 31). Clem Seecharan has indeed slaughtered a few cows in his career, but probably never without drinking a glass of good red wine afterward.'
