"This groundbreaking, deeply researched, and richly rewarding study illuminates how Haitians were key agents of inter-American connection and collaboration during the mid-twentieth century. Chantalle F. Verna rethinks Haiti's relation to the United States at that time by asking complex questions and reaching nuanced insights that seem just as relevant and important with reference to today."

Kate Ramsey

What experts are saying:


"Tracing Haitian post-occupation engagement with the United States, Verna rejects a narrow binary interpretation and convincingly demonstrates the importance of a thoroughly informed, nuanced lens in any analysis of Haiti–U.S. relations."
