This book is a "must read" when studying why Haiti continues to be an economic disaster despite the best efforts of well-intentioned people, charities, organizations, and governments. The authors both resided in Haiti in the 1960s and witnessed many of the traumatic events under "Papa Doc".This book accounts the history of Haiti from the time of Columbus to the 1990s. It describes the potential and opportunities to grow and prosper, sadly squandered for personal gain or just plain incompetence of its leadership.It has no happy ending and the turmoil, suffering, and poverty continue today. It contains a remarkable observation; Haiti enjoyed better government, infrastructure, sanitation, nutrition, living conditions, and economic success in the late 1790s than it has today!
The book is very interesting, even if it reoeat itself a lot. It is more a political than a social or economical history. It doesn't tell how people actually lived, qhich is what I was looing for. Nevertheless, it is as complete as a handbook can be.
This is perhaps the best book on the subject of Haiti period.
I've always wanted an all inclusive, well written history of the country I love, Haiti. This book put Haiti's history in a way I could enjoy reading it.
