Tectonic Shifts: Haiti Since the Earthquake

January 01, 2013

with a chapter “Haiti’s Fatally Flawed Election” by Jake Johnston and Mark Weisbrot

Tectonic Shifts offers compelling on-the-ground perspectives on the aftermath of Haiti’s cataclysmic earthquake. Following a critical analysis of the country’s heightened vulnerability as a result of centuries of underdevelopment and misguided foreign aid interventions, the authors address a range of contemporary realities, foreign impositions, and political changes in the relief and reconstruction periods.
