From Dessalines to Duvalier by David Nicholls (1996)
Reviewed by Bob Corbett, 10 February 1996. Nicholls assumes that events are shaped by the intellectuals who formulated history and ideology. The book is here compared to Haiti in the World Economy: Class, Race and Underdevelopment since 1700 by Alex Dupuy (1989).
Silencing the past: Power and the production of history by Michel-Rolph Trouillot
Reviewed by Bob Corbett, June 1996. Without writing a book about Haiti, Michel-Rolph Trouillot has written one of the most interesting books about Haiti I've ever read. A book about how history is created by historians.
