Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Haitian Revolution was the only successful slave revolt in world history and the first time people of color overthrew a European colonial regime to establish an independent country. This book offers students a concise and clearly written overview of the events of the Haitian Revolution, from the slave uprising in the French colony of Saint-Domingue in 1791 to the declaration of Haiti's independence in 1804 and the consolidation of the country's independence in the decades that followed.

Drawing on the latest scholarship in the field as well as on the author's original research, the book presents a chronological account of the complex historical contexts that produced and shaped the revolution, while paying due attention to important underlying themes. A Concise History of the Haitian Revolution is a valuable resource for those studying independence movements in Latin America, the history of the Atlantic World, the history of the African diaspora, and the age of the American and French revolutions.
