Notes From the Last Testament
The Struggle for HaitiBook - 2005
Latin American and Caribbean correspondent Deibert delivers a riveting account of the events leading up to and including the overthrow of Haitian president Jean-Bertrand Aristide. He conveys poetic on-the-ground perspectives on the violence and anarchy surrounding the Haitian people's courageous stand against the leader who brutally betrayed them after his election as an emblem of democracy. Deibert sets vivid testimonies alongside a comprehensive analysis of the country's history that reaches far back to Haiti's first days as a colony.
