Reviews

This text does an excellent job of unpacking the nuances and complexities of Haitians and people of Haitian descent living in the Dominican Republic. It is a story of labor exploitation, the residual and persistent impact of the trans-Atlantic slave trade, and the continued obsession in the Americas of constructing race through political mechanisms.--Angela J. Hattery, George Mason University
