KIRKUS REVIEW

A serviceable account of the troubled history of Haiti, from early colonial days to the present. This title in the World in Conflict series is current to 1998, and provides readers with web sites for continuing information on the topic. Turck discusses the geography, people, economy, history, and politics of Haiti; the material is backed up by a chronology, selected bibliography, detailed index, and the sources of the quoted material in an endnote. While some readers will find the dense three-column format daunting, the use of bold headings, many full-color and black-and-white photographs, and glossary make the text accessible and useful. (Nonfiction. 12-14)
