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

Justin Podur


In 1804 Haiti turned the world's first self reliant black Republic following a slave revolution. two hundred years later, ravaged by means of colonialism and violence, it used to be positioned lower than UN army occupation.

Haiti's New Dictatorship charts the country's contemporary heritage, from the 2004 coup opposed to President Aristide to the devastating 2010 earthquake, revealing a stunning tale of abuse and indifference by means of foreign forces. Justin Podur unmasks the awful fact of a supposedly benign overseas career, arguing that the denial of sovereignty is the elemental reason for Haiti's problems.

A strong problem and take-heed call to the overseas NGO and improvement group, Haiti's New Dictatorship is vital analyzing for somebody desirous about justice within the worldwide south and innovative improvement policies.
