The Reagan Administration's bold action to restore democracy and a free market economy to Grenada is now threatened by a combination of political inertia and renascent leftist subversion. The strategically located island, scene of last October's historic intervention by forces from six Caribbean islands and the United States, may be in danger of returning to the unstable political and economic environment preceding the 1979 Marxist coup d'etat that carried Grenada solidly into the Soviet/Cuban camp.
