5498: New book on Haiti and Jamaica (fwd)

From: Gina Ulysse <gulysse@bates.edu>

Hello Corbetters,

I wanted to alert everyone to a new historical study on Haiti and
that may be of interests to folks here particularly since it offers a
compartive perspective
that is so necessary if Haiti is to move out or be removed from its
isolated "savage slot"
