Praise for An Unbroken Agony

“A passionate and controversial look at continuing U.S. involvement in Haiti; recommended for all libraries.”
Library Journal
“Fiery…Robinson eloquently urges the white world to accord the constitutions and laws of black countries the same sanctity it accords its own.”
Kirkus
“Randall Robinson is a towering freedom fighter in the world of ideas and action. This poignant history of his beloved Haiti reminds us of his indispensable voice for our turbulent times.”
—Cornel West, Princeton University
“Randall Robinson’s courageous and dedicated work for justice and freedom has been an inspiration. It is therefore with great pleasure and anticipation that I learned of his new book on the tortured country of Haiti, which we have done so much to torment and devastate since it became the first free country of free men in the hemisphere over 200 years ago, continuing up to the present. It is sure to be another contribution of fundamental importance.”
—Noam Chomsky, Institute Professor & Professor of Linguistics, MIT and author of Hegemony or Survival and Failed States
“There are few voices that consistently rise above the din of punditry to speak up for those who are powerless. Randall Robinson is one such voice. With unimpeachable dignity and steadfast determination, Robinson’s eloquent prose brings attention to the plight of Haitians over the centuries in much the same way that he once brought people together to attack the vicious system of apartheid in South Africa. Displaying bravery both in the writing of this book as well as in his own actions detailed within, Robinson gives new life to heroes from Haiti’s revolutionary past and takes to task present day villains still patrolling the corridors of power in Washington, D.C.”
—Michael Eric Dyson, author of Debating Race and Come Hell or High Water
“With each new book Randall Robinson further cements his reputation as one of this world’s foremost advocates for freedom and justice. In An Unbroken Agony, Robinson charts the heroic and tragic history of Haiti and exposes the truth about those international power brokers who would take away two of our most precious resources: knowledge of our past and the ability to determine our future.”
—Henry Louis Gates, Jr., W. E. B. Du Bois Professor of the Humanities, Harvard University
