The rise and destruction of the plantation complex in Saint-Domingue has left palpable effects on the geography, social structure, and politics of present-day Haiti. This is less so in the case of France, but even the relative dimness of these traces are an effect of the power differentials that were established during the colonial epoch of Saint-Domingue. These conditions, and these vastly different perceptions of the meaning and legacy of the colonial episode on Haiti and France, shaped the conditions under which this book was researched and written.
