Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Haiti is the definitive inside account of the Duvaliers--father and son--and their legacy. In 1803, the enslaved people of Haiti vanquished their French masters after a bloody war that left tens of thousands dead. In 1986, Haitians celebrated victory, as Baby Doc Duvalier fled to France, ending three decades of brutal dictatorship. The Duvalier regime slaughtered at least 50,000 people, many in the infamous Fort Dimanche. Duvalierism drove a million people into exile, cowed the six million who remained, and tortured hundreds of thousands.

In this updated edition, Abbott ably shows how the Duvaliers' legacy shaped modern Haiti as she traces the repercussions of their actions to the present day, and the disastrous earthquake that shook the world.
