Reviews

"[A] valuable addition to the body of literature on the subjects of Haiti-Dominican Republic relations and Dominican anti-Haitianism."
--F. S. J. Ledgister"Hispanic American Historical Review" (02/01/2018)
"Rich and insightful. . . Peña's work is an interesting read and should provoke scholarly discussion and debate on the topic for a long time to come."-- (02/26/2018)
"A historically grounded, meticulously researched, and thoughtful analysis. . . . Among the book's many strengths are its readable and jargon-free prose, its detailed analysis of events that have received little attention in Dominican history and literature, and its investigation of 'never-beforestudied evidence based documents found in historical archives in Santo Domingo, Port-au-Prince, and Washington D.C.' (15). . . . A brave and successful effort to unearth and honor the truths that get silenced by hegemonic narratives."-- (11/09/2017)
