  1. Chris – Thanks so much for the link. I wish there was a way to make this scholarly work more accessible, but so much of it has gated access, as Gabriel notes.

    Great blog, too, by the way!

  2. You can also look at the following books on Haiti.
    -“Peasants and Poverty: A Study of Haiti “ by Swedish economist Mats Lundahl, on the interplay between population growth, agriculture and poverty in Haiti.
    -“Haïti-République Dominicaine : Une île pour deux” by haitian geographer Jean-Marie Théodat, on the divergent paths of the 2 countries sharing the island of Hispaniola.
    There’s also this Amazon reading list: http://www.amazon.com/Haiti-Reader-40-Seminal-Works/lm/R3RBCFATCO8TT3/ref=cm_srch_res_rpli_alt_4
