How slave healers inspired the Haitian Revolution, toppled the slave system, and led to the loss of France's most productive New World colony

About the Author

Karol Weaver is an assistant professor of American history and the history of medicine at Susquehanna University.


"This slim volume manages to touch on a wide range of fascinating topics: creole medical cultures, the impact of slavery, the relationship between medicine and power, gender, the legacy of colonial medicine in contemporary Haiti, and even historical memory. The book is thus worthy of attention for the important questions it raises and vistas it reveals for studying medical cultures in a place shaped by Atlantic world events and peoples." - Katherine Arner, H-LatAm, October 2012
