"The Uses of Haiti tells the truth about uncomfortable matters-uncomfortable, that is, for the structures of power and the doctrinal framework that protects them from critical scrutiny. It tells the truth about what has been happening in Haiti, and the U.S. role in its bitter fate."-Noam Chomsky

"A classic"-Jonathan Kozol, author, Death at an Early Age and Savage Inequalities
