The Uses of Haiti tells the truth about uncomfortable matters--uncomfortable, that is, for the structures of power and the doctrinal framework that protects them from scrutiny. It tells the truth about what has been happening in Haiti, and the US role in its bitter fate.--Noam Chomsky, from the introduction
