Haiti: The Persistence of Misfortune
Haiti: The Persistence of Misfortune is a succint but exhaustive account about Haiti and its ability to cope with the imminent problems that have been plaguing its march towards economic development and consequently prevent it from achieving genuine political independence. It is not a history book, but Haiti's social and political reality view through the prism of History. It emphasizes the circumstances in which the first independent black Republic has been denied her right to genuine political freedom and economic independence all through the centuries. The Haitian people's reality, which is still yet to be seen under better angles and in its better days, is a great interrogation. Why? Question that stays unanswered and that invites the world to make itself a clean conscience in terms of how it relates to this good people, to this welcoming small nation that has rocked so many dreams, quenched so many thirsts, made tangible so many illusions without having ever obtained a substantial part from the feast.
