Haitian Studies titles from UNC Press

The University of North Carolina Press has prided its self on accumulating and disseminating books that range in field and scope.  We have made it our mission to contribute to the ongoing debates and discussions within and outside of the academy.  In light of President Trump’s remarks regarding Haiti, El Salvador, and various African countries, as well as about individuals immigrating from these countries, UNC Press is delighted to have compiled a list of titles that the Press has published about Haitian history, which engage in intellectual discussions about the country and offer factually based evidence about the true identities, cultures, and  peoples of Haiti.  We hope you enjoy this list that we have provided for you.

Professors, you can easily and quickly request exam and desk copies online (including free digital exam copies) by visiting any of the books’ pages above. If you need assistance in choosing the right texts for your course, we’d be glad to help, contact us here.
