Book cover
Let Haiti Live
Unjust U.S. Policies Toward Its Oldest Neighbor
Edited by Melinda Miles and Eugenia Charles. Foreword by Rev. Jesse L. Jackson, Sr.
Book review:
"Once the richest colony in the world, the source of much of France's wealth and correctly described as 'the first free nation of free men,' Haiti is now the poorest country in the hemisphere. Most of its populations survives in miserable conditions, but with indomitable courage and spirit that can only amaze and inspire us. We have a large share of the responsibility for the grim history of this tortured land. And with that comes the responsibility to learn what has appened and to undertake the task of helping the proud people of Haiti to build the future they richly deserve. These probing and informative essays carry us a long way towards beginning to face that urgent responsibility."--Noam Chomsky

"This thoughtful, insightful, and well-documented book provides the background, the facts, the analysis and the historical perspective needed to understand the problems and issues confronting contemporary Haiti. It particularly helps us understand these problems and issues in the context of U.S. foreign policy and our responsibilities as U.S. citizens. Most important, it provides a much-needed vision of an alternative future for the proud people of Haiti."--Danny Glover
