Books Info:

Politics and Power in Haiti free pdf Haiti's history is one of revolution, intervention, and persistent underdevelopment. This book seeks to make sense of these challenging experiences through an examination of the political legacies of the Duvalier period and after. Revisiting the work of the late David Nicholls, widely acknowledged as a leading authority on Haiti, the chapters examine crucial questions of politics and power in Haiti, touching on issues of race and ethnicity, foreign intervention, economic development, and the impact of the devastating earthquake of January 2010. Leading academics and experts in Caribbean and Haitian Studies provide some of the keys to understanding the turbulent world of Haitian politics and the persistent challenges at home and from abroad which have distorted the country's development.
