Reviews

'The UN occupation of Haiti promised to bring stability and democracy. Instead it has delivered cholera, rape and repression. With a sharp eye and a keener pen, Justin Podur expertly exposes the abuses the gang of nations that calls itself 'the international community' has inflicted on one of the world's poorest countries' -- Greg Grandin, Professor of History at New York University
'The centuries-long torture of Haiti, and the courageous resistance of its people, is one of the most dramatic and compelling stories of modern history. It is vividly brought to life in this well-informed and highly illuminating study, which also provides valuable lessons about Haiti, about western power and ideology, and about prospects for justice and freedom in today's world' -- Noam Chomsky, Institute Professor & Professor of Linguistics (Emeritus) at MIT
'A systematic analysis of the new regime of power that governs Haiti today, and reviews the crucial episodes of its recent history' -- Peter Hallward, Professor of Modern European Philosophy at Kingston University and author of Damming the Flood: Haiti, Aristide, and the Politics of Containment (2007; 2011).
'A cogent antidote to the current confusion about Haiti' -- Brian Concannon, Director of the Institute for Justice and Democracy in Haiti
