Now, with Farewell, Fred Voodoo, she gives us a vivid portrayal of the extraordinary people living in this stark place.Wilentz traces the country’s history from its slave plantations through its turbulent revolutionary history, its kick-up-the-dirt guerrilla movements, its totalitarian dynasty that ruled for decades, and its long and always troubled relationship with the United States. Yet through a history of hardship shines Haiti’s creative culture—its African traditions, its French inheritance, and its uncanny resilience, a strength that is often confused with resignation. ” author=”Amy Wilentz” publisher=”Simon & Schuster” pubdate=”2013-01-08″ edition=”first” isbn=”1451643977″ ebook=”yes” paperback=”yes” hardcover=”yes” ]
