In his 2002 Haiti's Predatory Republic, Fatton (government and foreign affairs, U. of Virginia) described the brief ascendancy and crisis of Jean-Bertrand Aristide's Lavalas movement after the fall of the Duvalier dictatorship in 1986. Here he delves deeper into the social origins of Haitian despotism and why the country since its inception has had a persistent history of dictatorial regimes lording it over an exploited majority. The key is habitus, he says, a complicated repertoire of practices, attitudes, and behavior grounded in the material foundation of society.

Book Description Lynne Rienner Publishers Inc, United States, 2007. Hardback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Though founded in the wake of a revolution that embodied its slave population s quest for freedom and equality, Haiti has endured a history marked by an unending pattern of repressive dictatorial regimes. Exploring that history, Robert Fatton offers a rigorous explanation of how and why the legacy of colonialism, the struggle against slavery, and the intersection of the domestic and world economies have contributed to both material scarcity in the country and the entrenchment of authoritarian rule. Fatton illuminates the culture of authoritarianism that, coupled with conditions of extreme underdevelopment, continues to undermine Haiti s recent struggle to establish a meaningful democracy. While offering some hope for the emergence of a more accountable political system, he underscores the profound difficulties of freeing Haitian society from the structural legacy of its long history of despotism. Fatton explores the historical legacy that has contributed to both material scarcity in Haiti and the entrenchment of authoritarian rule. Seller Inventory # AAN9781588265449
