Synopsis

Hesketh-Prichard, a popular Edwardian English travel writer, sailed to Haïti in 1899 to survey the conditions on the island, the first-ever Black-ruled republic. At the time, it was believed no White man had ventured in that mysterious and closed-off part of the world since 1804, when General Jean-Jacques Dessalines ordered the massacre of all the Whites in what was then known as Saint-Domingue. Hesketh-Prichard had opportunity to venture deep into Haïti's interior, unknown at the time, and was first to witness the practice of vaudoux (voodoo). He also narrowly escaped with his life, after an attempt was made to poison him. Hesketh-Prichard's observations, narrated in an exquisitely understated tone, cover every aspect of Haïtian society in 1899, ranging from the grotesque to the tragi-comical—indeed, the reader will experience just about every emotion in the human spectrum as he devours this immensely entertaining book. More importantly, Hesketh-Prichard's account explains why Haïti, once one of the most prosperous colonies in the New World, is so profoundly dysfunctional today. It also implicitly explains why the current Third World development paradigm is, however well-intentioned, so profoundly ill-conceived.

This new 2012 edition will come in both hardback and paperback formats, complete with an expanded index, contextual footnotes, an introductory essay, and specially commissioned cover artwork by Alex Kurtagic, who also did the covers for Mister and our editions of Lothrop Stoddard's The Revolt Against Civilization and The French Revolution in San Domingo), and Madison Grant's The Passing of the Great Race.
