What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

An Islandwide Struggle for Freedom demonstrates a truly original point: that events in Saint-Domingue/Haiti during the revolutionary era were influenced at every turn by events in the other half of the island of Hispaniola, the Spanish colony of Santo Domingo--and vice versa. This is a major contribution to the scholarship on the Haitian Revolution and to the larger story of the struggle over slavery in the American world.--Jeremy Popkin, University of Kentucky



This first full-scale account of revolutionary Hispaniola casts a brilliant new light on the complex politics of the Haitian Revolution, which Nessler persuasively reinterprets as an insular, as well as circum-Caribbean, phenomenon. An engaging, lucid, and artfully written work of historical scholarship.--Malick Ghachem, Massachusetts Institute of Technology
