With the heightened interest in Haiti following the earthquake of 2010, and the troubled state of its institutions in the decades before that, the world community has received a barrage of information regarding the country, much of it based on stereotypes and ignorance. This title provides comprehensive bibliographic information on the development of one of the earliest independent countries in the Western Hemisphere, from its colonial past through independence to the 21st century. In both the introductory material and in the bibliographic selections, this bilingual work emphasizes the impact of its colonial "mother country," France, and of its most important "neighbor," the United States, on Haitian constitutional and legal development.--Publisher.
