Haiti's New Dictatorship
My book Haiti’s New Dictatorship: The Coup, the Earthquake, and the UN Occupation, is out (as of October 2012). The US co-publisher is Palgrave Macmillan and the Canadian co-publisher is Between the Lines.
A short blurb about the book:
In 1804 Haiti became the world’s first independent Black republic following a slave revolution. Two hundred years later, ravaged by colonialism and violence, it was placed under a UN military occupation. Justin Podur reveals the reality of a supposedly benign international occupation, arguing that the denial of sovereignty is the fundamental cause of Haiti’s problems.
A chapter on Incompatible Objectives: Development and Counterinsurgency in Canada’s Afghanistan Strategy, will be part of the collection Empire’s Ally, edited by Jerome Klassen and Greg Albo, in January 2013.
A chapter on Racism, Culture, and a Participatory Society is in Real Utopia: Participatory Society for the 21st Century, by AK Press 2008. Edited by Chris Spannos.
