Booknews
Dupuy (sociology, Wesleyan U.) examines the reasons for Haiti's failure to realize the promise of its revolutionary beginnings, becoming instead the poorest country in the Western Hemisphere. He analyzes the interplay of structural factors that contributed to Haiti's underdevelopment and considers the rise of a peasantry and a national bourgeoisie divided along color lines. Annotation c.
