A classic and impassioned account of the first revolution in the Third World This powerful intensely dramatic book is the definitive account of the Haitian Revolution of 1794 1803 a revolution that began in the wake of the Bastille but became the model for the Third World liberation movements from Africa to Cuba It is the story of the French colony of San Domingo a place where the brutality of master toward slave was commonplace and ingeniously refined And it is the story of a barely literate slave named Toussaint L Ouverture who led the black people of San Domingo in a successful struggle against successive invasions by overwhelming French Spanish and English forces and in the process helped form the first independent nation in the Caribbean
