Start your review of Silencing the Guns in Haiti: The Promise of Deliberative Democracy
Just finished this one in prep for a doc I'm doing in Haiti. Awesome brief history of the country since the slave revolt, and discussion of Democracy as a general topic and the specific struggles Haiti deals with in establishing a stable democracy. Is a couple years out of date, but is a great intro for the history of the current situation.
