An Unbroken Agony: Haiti, from Revolution to the Kidnapping of a President Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

On February 29, 2004, the first democratically elected president of Haiti, Jean-Bertrand Aristide, was forced to leave his country. The president was kidnapped, along with his Haitian-American wife, by American soldiers and flown to the isolated Central African Republic. In An Unbroken Agony, best-selling author and social justice advocate Randall Robinson chronicles his own cross-Atlantic journey to rescue the Haitian president from captivity in Africa while also connecting the fate of Aristides presidency to the Haitian peoples century-long quest for self-determination.

Synopsis:

Robinson explores the singularly curious and inimitable tragic history of the island nation of Haiti, beginning with the present anarchic disrepair of it modern state. From one revolution to another, Haiti has changed the fate of empires yet has not been able to live up to the promise of its birth.

Synopsis:

Bestselling author and bold social commentator, Randall Robinson explores the singularly curious and ultimately tragic history of Haiti.

In 1984, Robinson established the Free South Africa Movement and in 1994, his public advocacy, including a 27-day hunger strike, led to the UN multinational operation that restored Haitis first democratically elected government to power.
