Haiti is known to be among the poorest of all countries. But, as Amy Wilentz argues in Farewell, Fred Voodoo, "Haiti has always been the most modern of nations," in globalization, in being home to one of the three defining revolutions of the 1700's and in being the first of all nations to overthrow a colonial government. This book, by a frequent visitor and sometimes resident of Haiti, provides a useful view of a nation that has faced unparalleled challenges.
