In January 1804, the once wealthy colony of Saint-Domingue declared its independence from France and adopted the Amerindian name Haiti. Independence was the outcome of the extraordinary uprising of the colony's slaves. Although a central event in the history of the French in the New World, the full significance of the revolution has yet to be realized. These essays deepen our understanding of Haiti during the period from 1791 to 1815. They consider the colony's history and material culture; its free people of color ; the events leading up to the revolution and its violent unfolding; the political and economic fallout from the revolution; and its cultural representations.
