My book Haiti’s New Dictatorship: The Coup, the Earthquake, and the UN Occupation, is out (as of October 2012). The US co-publisher is Palgrave Macmillan and the Canadian co-publisher is Between the Lines.
A short blurb about the book:
In 1804 Haiti became the world’s first independent Black republic following a slave revolution. Two hundred years later, ravaged by colonialism and violence, it was placed under a UN military occupation. Justin Podur reveals the reality of a supposedly benign international occupation, arguing that the denial of sovereignty is the fundamental cause of Haiti’s problems.
