About this product
- DescriptionA sophisticated, elegant, well-researched, very varied, brilliantly and fluidly written book. Also an indispensable guide to understanding the Haitian immigrant reality fully and completely. --Georges E. Fouron, SUNY-Stony Brook Adds an important dimension to our broader understanding of a topic often igred in academic and popular literature--the complex issues of intra-Caribbean migration. --Robert Maguire, Trinity Washington UniversityDuring the past ten years, political debates, legal disputes, and rising violence associated with the presence of Haitian migrants have flared up throughout the Caribbean basin in such places as Guadeloupe, the Dominican Republic, French Guiana, the Bahamas, and Jamaica. The contributors to this volume explore the common thread of prejudice against the Haitian diaspora as well as its potential role in the construction of national narratives from a comparative and interdisciplinary perspective.These essays, written by historians, anthropologists, sociologists, and Francophone studies scholars, examine how Haitians interact as an immigrant group with other parts of the Caribbean as well as how they are perceived and treated, particularly in terms of ethnicity and race, in their migration experience in the broader Caribbean.By discussing the prevalence of anti-Haitianism throughout the region alongside the challenges Haitians face as immigrants, this volume completes the global view of the Haitian diaspora saga.
