THE EASTERN CARIBBEAN INSTITUTE, ECI, is a publishing and consulting company located in Frederiksted, St. Croix, Virgin Islands.
The focus of the Institute is on issues as they pertain to Economic and Political-Economic issues of the Eastern Caribbean in the first instance and the wider Caribbean, in the second instance. We have been publishing books in Economics, Poetry, short stories, novels and crossword puzzles since 1991, when we published our first novel, the classic, entitled Sonny Jim of Sandy Point. We have over 20 titles in print and over ten thousand copies of our books have been bought and read. One of our many objectives is to give a voice to authors who may have a small market
for their works. But since we believe in the saying that "Small is beautiful,"
and that we could be creators of circumstances, not creatures of circumstances, we continue to work our magic to get the work of our creators out to the public.
