9780745332574: Haiti's New Dictatorship: The Coup, the Earthquake and the UN Occupation

In 1804 Haiti became the world's first independent black Republic following a slave revolution. 200 years later, ravaged by colonialism and violence, it was placed under UN military occupation.

Haiti's New Dictatorship charts the country's recent history, from the 2004 coup against President Aristide to the devastating 2010 earthquake, revealing a shocking story of abuse and indifference by international forces. Justin Podur unmasks the grim reality of a supposedly benign international occupation, arguing that the denial of sovereignty is the fundamental cause of Haiti's problems.

A powerful challenge and wake-up call to the international NGO and development community, Haiti's New Dictatorship is essential reading for anyone concerned with justice in the global south and progressive development policies.

About the Author:

Justin Podur is Associate Professor of Environmental Studies at York University, Canada. He is a writer on political conflicts and social movements, and has reported from numerous countries including the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Pakistan, Haiti and Israel/Palestine. He is a contributor to Empire's Ally: Canadian Foreign Policy and the War in Afghanistan (2012).

Review:

"With the country firmly held in the long-term grip of a foreign 'stabilization' force, the vast majority of Haiti's people have little or no political power. Justin Podur's book is a systematic analysis of the new regime of power that governs Haiti today, and reviews the crucial episodes of its recent history. It makes a valuable new contribution to the study of the decisive 2004-2006 post-coup period and offers a timely overview of the whole period of post-Aristide Haiti, right up to the present day. " – Peter Hallward, Professor of Modern European Philosophy at Kingston University and author of Damming the Flood: Haiti, Aristide, and the Politics of Containment
