University of South Carolina, 2001 - 261 páginas
Fifteen chapters consider the political, economic, ideological, and psychological effect of the Haitian revolution. The chapters discuss influence on slave resistance and the expansion of slavery, as well as the opening of economic frontiers, and the formation of Black and white Diasporas. They also show how the Haitian revolution shaped the debates about race and slavery, and inspired plays, novels, and poetry. The contributors include historians and sociologists from North America and Europe. The slave revolution that two hundred years ago created the state of Haiti alarmed and excited public opinion on both sides of the Atlantic. Its repercussions ranged from the world commodity markets to the imagination of poets, from the council chambers of the great powers to slave quarters in Virginia and Brazil and most points in between
