    There s a lot of information in here, but its treatment leaves a lot to be desired It s a nice overview of Haiti US relations over the course of two plus centuries Especially if used as a springboard towards precise sources An example of what I mean In a section describing the increasing influence of the US and English in Haiti along with the decreasing importance of French language and culture, Pamphile says Several secondary schools offer French only curricula Two of these schools are Lyc e Alexandre Dumas in Port au Prince and Centre Alcibiade Pomayrac in Jacmel Well, Lyc e Alexandre Dumas is the lyc e fran ais, so that doesn t really prove much I mean, there s a lyc e fran ais in Manhattan, too Does that mean Americans are striving for French culture There are several examples like this The point the author is trying to make may well be valid, but the messy argumentation and referencing works against him The book is fine for someone who already knows the basic information, or knows where to go for precision Someone going into it blind will probably be misled on a lot of things.
