Editorial Reviews

Review

'This is the most succinct, convenient and accurate history of the Haitian Revolution currently available. It fills a significant gap in the historiography between monographs and general histories on one side and novels and creative literature on the other. The authors have produced an intelligent and highly useful collection of documents, many virtually inaccessible, and conveniently translated them for the English-speaking audience. Their ability to contextualize the events of the revolution briefly is simply exemplary.' - Franklin Knight, Johns Hopkins University, USA 'This is the most amazing document collection I have ever read. It is emotionally gripping, intellectually stimulating, morally provocative, action-packed and full of points of comparison to histories of slavery and freedom everywhere. It has a terrific narrative flow and inherent pathos...This is a wonderful achievement for which all sorts of teachers will be most grateful.' - Evan Haefeli, Tufts University, USA 'This is the most succinct, convenient and accurate history of the Haitian Revolution currently available.

Format: Paperback
I could not be helped but be moved by the documents in this book. The author did an incredible job of helping the reader understand the importance of San Domingue and the other French colonies by including letters, articles and transcripts. This was so important to my research about the nation that would eventually become Haiti and other colonies that found themselves in similar circumstances. These accounts tell the real truth about life in the French colonies and the resolve of the inhabitants.

Format: Paperback
A great reader on the Haitian Revolution. It is cheap, short, and has a great summary of the revolution at the beginning, so it is perfect as a supplementary reading in classes on slavery, Atlantic History, Haitian history, etc.
The documents are well chosen and representative. John Garrigus is a thorough researcher, and it shows: the documents are taken straight from the French archives.
