About this title


Provides a pictorial chronicle of Haiti and its tumultuous history, and of the Haitian people and their struggle for freedom and modest prosperity

From Library Journal:

Steber's vivid color photographs communicate all too explicitly the tragic violence of Haiti. Unlike television documentaries in which images flash by, allowing us to glance away, these photographs capture critical moments for all time--of young men gunned down in the streets, of voodoo rituals, of anguished children at the funerals of their parents, of a nation destroying itself. Interspersed among the scenes of brutality and deprivation are glimpses of people who dare to smile faintly, including one particularly touching portrait of a peasant woman and her three children. Readers are left with the clear sense that everyone in Haiti is a victim, but none more so than these people who wish simply to eke out an existence. Far more than a disturbing book, this is a study of the hopelessness of a people who cannot live except by extremes ranging from utter chaos to the brutal order of dictatorial rule. Highly recommended for both public and academic libraries; essential wherever photography, Caribbean studies, and current events titles thrive.

Shipping Terms:

U.S. Shipping:
We ship our books according to media rate through the US Postal Services. This is the cheapest way for us to ship you your books. We will contact you if shipping will cost more than the listed price. Please note that heavier and larger-sized books will cost more to ship as the general shipping cost is used for average-weight/sized books. If you would like your book insured, specifically packed or delivered faster it will cost more and you will need to contact us.

All our packages are wrapped in foam, bubble wrap, peanuts or a combination thereof.

International Shipping:
As a standard for shipping, we ship all our books in a Global Priority Flat Rate mailer envelope. This costs just a couple bucks more than ground and will get there in 4 to 10 business days instead of the one to two months it would for Ground. Priority in a box costs a bit more (about 17.50,) but has that added bit of protection. We're more than happy to ship Ground for $9.00 or Express for $30.00. Let us know what you prefer if the option isn't listed.

All our packages are wrapped in foam, bubble wrap, peanuts or a combination thereof.
