About this product
- DescriptionWhat would the island of Hispaniola look like if viewed as a loosely connected system? That is the question Haitian-Dominican Counterpointseeks to answer as it surveys the insular space shared by Haiti and the Dominican Republic throughout their parallel histories. For beneath the familiar tale of hostilities, the systemic perspective reveals a lesser-kwn, unitarian narrative of interdependencies and reciprocal influences shaping each country'sidentity. In view of the sociocultural and ecomic linkages connecting the two countries, their relations would have to resemble t so much acockfight (the conventional metaphor) as a serial and polyrhythmic counterpoint.
