Abstract
This essay assesses the principles of economic vulnerability and resilience and their
contribution to the study and development of small island developing states (SIDS). It is
based on a detailed critical account of the contents of a recent publication - Briguglio &
Kisanga (2004) - that addresses this issue. It is thus an extended book review that
examines arguments central to many current mainstream considerations of small island
economies.
Keywords: vulnerability, small island developing states (SIDS), islands, resilience,
indicators.
