Overview

The Republic of Haiti is a fascinating country of contrast where are joined together tradition and illiteracy, high religion and folk religion, light and darkness. It is a country ravaged by poverty and afflicted by a considerable social backwardness where people live in a constant fear of a heavy and gloomy threat which impregnates every fiber of the society in which they live: that of Voodoo.

Through this captivating work, Dr. André J. Louis translates us into a world that most ordinary people would never even imagine the existence of such occultism where superstition, sorcery, magic, spiritism, divination, and animism combine all their strength in order to set up the background of the daily life of each Haitian, which, unfortunately, overwhelms him with a heavy weight of fear, economic bondage and uncertainty regarding his future.
