When violent rebels descended on Port-au-Prince in 2004, and President Aristide left Haiti in a hurry, one big question was left hanging over the National Palace: did he run or was he kidnapped? The theme of this book is starkly presented and aggressively argued: that Aristide, Haiti's only president democratically elected by the common people, was kidnapped by the United States on behalf of the mulatto elite, and spirited away to exile in Africa, thus ensuring continuation of an unjust social order that has prevailed in Haiti for generations. Of course, Aristide's critics argue that the former priest fell into the corrupt ways of most of his predecessors. His supporters will say that the US could not countenance the surging popularity of a president whose genuine interests lay with the poor and oppressed. What makes this book disturbing is that its arguments are convincing, and that a dispassionate reader might well be left thinking that America's continued interference in Haitian affairs is more to do with commercial self-interest than anything akin to altruism. As recent troubles demonstrate, the agony of Haiti's poor seems never to end, and the country's social, political and economic woes seem to intensify by the day. Left to its own devices, Haiti would almost certainly be just as big a disaster area as it is today, a country ravaged by natural calamities and corrupt politicians.But it's perhaps time it was left alone. Certainly, there is nothing to suggest that American interference has made things better. Aristide was viewed by many as Haiti's last chance. But he isn't there anymore.
Randall Robinson enables the reader to truly understand the platform of dependency enforced on a people, the history of this nation and the international bullying of this sovereign state. It documents with great openness; with a refreshing disregard for political correctness; how the international community have bullied this nation for over 200 years. Shamefully, it exposes the American neoliberal policies for what they really are, and enables the reader to make her/his own decision on the real objectives of these policies and what the future development platform for Haiti should be.
I read An Unbroken Agony: Haiti from Revolution to the Kidnapping of a President and found it interesting reading.
I also found it disturbing in two ways: First, I was troubled by the strong anti-US and anti-France approach. I was troubled by his strong emotions. Second, it disturbed me to realize that his anger at the US and France for kidnapping Aristide may be justified. The difficulty I had was in determining whether what he said was based on fact or emotion. I was forced to decide that while the account is very emotional and therefore likely to be slanted, it is also probably accurate.
The author was an eye witness in the Central African Republic and he did hear from those who talked with the President of that country about Aristide and his house arrest.
I had to conclude that the US and France were culpable of kidnapping a president of a sovereign nation because he posed some kind of a threat to the US? To France? Or was the threat to the elite of Haiti who didn't like his attempted reforms of a very corrupt society and government?
Randall Robinson paints the accusation that the United States and perhaps France as well masterminded the February 2004 coup d'état ousting Haiti's democratically elected president Jean-Bertrand Aristide. This would be a troubling revelation, if true. But doesn't the CIA do that sort of thing all the time? God knows what they've done! Unfortunately, Randall makes Aristide look like a black Mahatma Gandhi - virtually without flaw, that is. Hasn't he done anything wrong? Doesn't he at least cuss every once in awhile? Randall's racial bias is also palpable. There's anti-white rhetoric throughout this book. Randall also has a penchant for writing very short chapters that seem little more than afterthoughts. This book could definitely use better organization. Nevertheless, Randall writes a compelling narrative that many students of international machinations and outright shenanigans would find informative. Moreover, anybody interested in the plight of poor little Haiti should probably read this book.
I sent the author an e-mail when I finished reading this book. And I will tell you like I told him. This is one of the best books I have read in quite sometime. Mr. Robinson is a voice for the people of Haiti. I admire people like him because he cares so much for which most people care so little.
Its world known that America always involve in shady deal,mingling in other countries affairs.This book clearly demonstrated how America involvement in Haiti politic when it doesnt fit the criteria of the establishment.What a shame they never forgive Haiti for what Haiti did two hundred years ago. That country could be a better place by now if they had never interfere on his social agenda.
The media is always telling us that Haiti is the poorest country in the western hemisphere, but it never tells us why?? Mr. Robinson does, the US and France have been torturing Haiti since it gained it freedom from France, and they have done a dam good job!!
