BeschreibungHaiti, Rising Flames from Burning Ashes is a brutally honest and precise historical analysis of Haiti and a discussion of how the political system can be reformed to promote democracy, a vibrant economy, and cultural integration. In contrast to traditional theory, Haiti, Rising Flames from Burning Ashes explores the distribution of powers rather than the separation of powers as a solution to Haiti's political and cultural chaos.

PressestimmenHyppolite Pierre has emerged as one of the most thoughtful and provocative young Haitian scholars in the United States...Pierre's diagnosis of Haiti's political ailments is dead-on... As Pierre passionately argues in his new work, although more than two hundred years have passed since gaining independence, most Haitians can barely perceive their freedom in the midst of the lawlessness and deprivation that threatens to keep both democracy and development at bay. -- Daniel P. Erikson, senior associate for U.S. policy and director of Caribbean programs at the Inter-American Dialogue ...Haiti, Rising Flames From Burning Ashes is a seminal work, which dissects the country's embattled past and seeks answers to the complex sociopolitical and economic problems plaguing this developing nation. This fascinating historical work will be useful for policymakers, NGOs and those seeking to eradicate Haiti's problems. -- Jerome Teelucksingh, The University of the West Indies The Journal Of Haitian Studies Hyppolite Pierre has written an important and provocative book, one that should enhance his reputation as a voice to be reckoned with in Haitian political circles.Pierre's strategy of grounding his argument in the unfulfilled revolution of 1804 is insightful and wise...He brings impressive historical knowledge to the task and deftly uses the context of Haitian independence. -- G.A. Rosso, Professor of English, Southern Connecticut State University Institute For Research In Social Sciences and Politics
