Damming the Flood - Peter Hallward - مكتبات الشروق
Formerly the most lucrative European colony in the Caribbean, Haiti has long been one of the most divided and impoverished countries in the world-a fact made clear by the disastrous effects of the earthquake in January 2010, which triggered another US military operation. Damming the Flood analyzes the American and French role in the violent overthrow of President Jean-Bertrand Aristide in 2004. The suppression of the remarkable popular mobilization known as Lavalas, or the flood,A" was perhaps the most successful act of imperial sabotage since the end of the Cold War. Updated with a new afterword that covers the international response to the earthquake, Damming the Flood is both an invaluable history of Haiti and a crucial account of America's twentyfirst-century imperialism.

"Long before a devastating earthquake hit in January 2010, Haiti was one of the most impoverished and oppressed countries in the world. However, in the late 1980s a remarkable popular mobilization known as Lavalas (“the flood”) sought to liberate the island from decades of US-backed dictatorial rule. Damming the Flood analyzes how and why the Lavalas governments led by President Jean-Bertrand Aristide were overthrown, in 1991 and again in 2004, by the enemies of democracy in Haiti and abroad. The elaborate campaign to suppress Lavalas was perhaps the most successful act of imperial sabotage since the end of the Cold War. It has left the people of Haiti at the mercy of some of the most rapacious political and economic forces on the planet. Updated with a substantial new afterword that addresses the international response to the earthquake, Damming the Flood is both an invaluable account of recent Haitian history and an illuminating analysis of twenty-first-century imperialism."
