For a discussion ot Curašao's changing political structure following World War Two, see Nolda R÷mer-Kenepa, Di Kolonia K˛rsou pa Antias Hulandes, in Krist˛f X-3 9 (no date), pp. 2-12. A.F. Paula, Hoofdmomenten uit de Staatkundige ontwikkeling van de Nederlandes Antillen (1865-1986), LantŔrnu 9 (1989), provides more detailed analysis and a broader historical perspective. Koot, et al and Cßceres de Pefaur also analyze the political status of Curašao and the Netherlands Antilles in the second half of the twentieth century. For a comprehensive description of Curašao's administrative and political structure throughout the second half of the century, see Alex Reinders, Politieke geschiedenis van de Nederlandse Antillen en Aruba 1950-1993 (Zutphen: Walburg Press, 1993).
