Haiti: From Revolutionary Slaves to Powerless Citizens

Essays on the Politics and Economics of Underdevelopment, 1804-2013

This title focuses on Haiti from an international perspective. Haiti has endured undue influence from successive French and US governments; its fragile ‘democracy’ has been founded on subordination to and dominance of foreign powers. This book examines Haiti’s position within the global economic and political order, and how the more dominant members of the international community have, in varying ways, exploited the country over the last 200 years.

  1. Not to forget benighted rulers such as Pappa Doc and Baby Doc, the cleptomaniac Duvaliers and their families and supporters. They were possibly the worst of a lot of very poor leaders.
