    DescriptionThe 7.0 magnitude earthquake that hit Haiti s capital on January 12, 2010 will be remembered as one of the world s deadliest disasters. The earthquake was a tragedy that gripped the nation and the world. But as a disaster it also magnified the social ills that have beset this island nation that sits squarely in the United States diplomatic and geopolitical shadow. The quake exposed centuries of underdevelopment, misguided economic policies, and foreign aid interventions that have contributed to rampant inequality and social exclusion in Haiti."Tectonic Shifts" offers a diverse on-the-ground set of perspectives about Haiti s cataclysmic earthquake and the aftermath that left more than 1.5 million individuals homeless. Following a critical analysis of Haiti s heightened vulnerability as a result of centuries of foreign policy and most recently neoliberal economic policies, this book addresses a range of contemporary realities, foreign impositions, and political changes that occurred during the relief and reconstruction periods. Analysis of these realities offers tools for engaged, principled reflection and action. Essays by scholars, journalists, activists, and Haitians still on the island and those in the Diaspora highlight the many struggles that the Haitian people face today, providing lessons not only for those impacted and involved in relief, but for people engaged in struggles for justice and transformation in other parts of the world.
