Reviews

'This volume brings together fascinating contributions from internationally recognized scholars on Haitian politics and history, presenting important historical and international analysis which will be of relevance for a long time to come.' - Amanda Sives, University of Liverpool, UK

'Specialists and general readers alike will find in Politics and Power in Haiti a valuable ally in their efforts to disentangle the disconcerting web of tribalism, race hatred and class warfare that makes up political life in Haiti today.' - Andrew Leak, University College London, UK

"This is an extraordinary collection. Together, the contributions illustrate how Haiti is much like other countries in Latin America and the Caribbean, a colonized nation struggling to establish its identity (African, French, and Caribbean) and to reach stability against the legacy of colonialism (violence, escapism, color, and class). This book is a must for students of the region who wish to understand how Haiti's historical, spiritual, and cultural life bears on its social, economic, and political reality." - Tony Payan, James A Baker III Institute for Public Policy, Rice University, USA
