About the Author

Michael Deibert's writing has appeared in The Guardian, the Washington Post, the Wall Street Journal and Le Monde diplomatique, among others. He has been a featured commentator on international affairs on the BBC, Al Jazeera, Channel 4, France 24, and National Public Radio. He is the author of three books: In the Shadow of Saint Death (2014), The Democratic Republic of Congo (Zed 2013), and Notes from the Last Testament (2005).


Deibert brings his journalistic eye and deep affection for Haiti to an unflinching and urgently needed work, documenting the political corruption, culture of impunity and international meddling that have plagued this nation over the past two decades. * Carrie Gibson, author of Empire's Crossroads: A History of the Caribbean *
Deibert's exhaustive reportage gets an edge from his righteous anger on behalf of a people with whom he has a deep and abiding connection. An invaluable sourcebook for the period, and also a riveting read. * Madison Smartt Bell, author of All Souls' Rising: A Novel of Haiti *
An engrossing tour through Haiti's extraordinary history of survival. Its great strength is Deibert's sharp ear for Haiti's many voices, for too long muted by a jaundiced media. * Matthew J. Smith, University of the West Indies (Jamaica) *
