Toronto — June 2, 2008.
Launch of Peter Hallward’s Damming the Flood: Aristide, Haiti, and the Politics of Containment (Verso Books).
Damming the Flood has been widely praised as the first accurate and comprehensive analysis of recent Haitian history as well an insightful eye into the future of the battered Caribbean country. In his groundbreaking book, Hallward analyzes the role of foreign powers, including Canada, in the overthrow of Aristide and the other institutions of elected government in Haiti in February, 2004. As Hallward chronicles, the story of Haiti’s betrayal has much to teach Canadians about the acts done in our name when we weren’t looking.
