[[ Read Epub ]] ⚶ A Concise History of the Haitian Revolution ¹ This book offers students a concise and clearly written overview of the events of the Haitian Revolution, from the slave uprising in the French colony of Saint Domingue into the declaration of Haiti s independence in Draws on the latest scholarship in the field as well as the author s original research Offers a valuable resource for those studying independence movements in Latin America, the history of the Atlantic World, the history of the African diaspora, and the age of the American and French revolutions Written by an expert on both the French and Haitian revolutions to offer a balanced view Presents a chronological, yet thematic, account of the complex historical contexts that produced and shaped the Haitian Revolution Quite literally, one of the most boring books that I have endured The book fell flat after a couple chapters I refuse to strain through boring books, life is too short for boring books. Very much a dry read, doesn t go very deep But as hard as it is to find anything about Haiti that s been converted to audio, it was worth while A good overview to a person who s unfamiliar with the subject, although it is easy to get lost. Great overview of the topic a good way to get a sense of who the famous names of the revolution are e.g Boukman, Toussaint, Dessalines , and what it is they did The book tells a compelling narrative of how competing interests in Haiti, as they jostled against one another, also nudged the abolition of slavery, and the independence of the country into existence Occasionally Popkin writes about famous events as if the reader already knows all about them the great plague of the OUP Very Shor Great overview of the topic a good way to get a sense of who the famous names of the revolution are e.g Boukman, Toussaint, Dessalines , and what it is they did The book tells a compelling narrative of how competing interests in Haiti, as they jostled against one another, also nudged the abolition of slavery, and the independence of the country into existence Occasionally Popkin writes about famous events as if the reader already knows all about them the great plague of the OUP Very Short Introductions, and other introductory booksgenerally , and I think I probably would have enjoyed thicker descriptions of the emergent Haitian culture in this period, but I m willing to accept that as the job of another book
