The History of Haiti (The Greenwood Histories of the Modern Nations) by Steeve Coupeau

Haitis long and turbulent history is documented in this comprehensive reference volume, ideal for high school students, undergrads, and general readers. Discovered by Christopher Columbus on his journey across the Atlantic in 1492, Haiti has had a tumultuous past at best. Epidemics, revolutions, slavery, and poverty have plagued this small Latin American country for centuries, and even today its unstable government has prevented Haiti from becoming a popular Caribbean tourist destination. This volume of the Greenwood Histories of the Modern Nations series explores Haitis bloodied past, beginning with Spanish, French, Dutch, and British attempts at colonization up until todays coups and political uprisings. The History of Haiti is the perfect addition to any high school, public, or undergraduate library. The work includes a timeline of important events, biographies of important figures in Haitis history, a glossary of terms, and a bibliographic essay. Chapters include: BLThe Pearl of the Antilles BLEarly Haiti (1492-1804) BLIndependence and Empire (1804-1843) BLThe Pre-Occupation Era (1843-1915) BLThe American Occupation of Haiti and Its Aftermath (1915-1957) BLPolitical Culture (1957-1986) BLSocial and Economic Reality (1986-2006
