James R. Mancham, their first president, is in large part responsible for Seychelles's current peace and prosperity, although he served for less than a year before being deposed in a bloodless coup backed by the Communists. I'd never read the autobiography of a politician before, and I thought this was surprisingly modest in tone.

Overview: Seychelles

Structural transformation in Seychelles is complicated by its geographical position, topography and small population. The country is composed of 115 islands covering a wide geographical area in the Indian Ocean. Natural resources, land space, arable land and fresh-water resources are all limited. The main natural resource exploited on a large scale is fish, from the wide expanse of ocean. The fisheries are the most important export sector and account for over 80 per cent of export revenues, although  only representing about 11 per cent of formal employment.  The country has also exploited its land and water surfaces, to promote land-based (hotels, resorts and private housing) and sea-based (fishing, diving, and snorkeling) tourism. While tourism is the main employer in the country; there has been limited diversification and insufficient product differentiation making the sector vulnerable to competition.
