Overview

What would the island of Hispaniola look like if viewed as a loosely connected system? That is the question Haitian-Dominican Counterpoint seeks to answer as it surveys the island shared by Haiti and the Dominican Republic throughout their parallel histories. Beneath the familiar tale of hostilities, Matibag reveals a lesser-known, "unitarian" history of interdependencies and reciprocal influences shaping each country's identity, with strong sociocultural and economic linkages.
