Duvalier's Ghosts

The introductory chapter tries to highlight the concerns brought to light in the book regarding the subject of race, diaspora, and U.S. imperialism in the Haitian literature. The chapter explores the main focus of the book, which is to demonstrate how national politics in developing countries cannot be evaluated separately from extraterritorial forces. These extraterritorial forces are meant to signify the foreign policies developed countries impose on developing countries, such as Haiti, through international financial institutions. The chapter aims to rethink the theorization of Haiti's terror within the national parameters and create a theory that details institutional pressures such as poverty, political instability, and violence. The chapter also discusses military imperialism, state violence, and global capitalism throughout the Duvalier and post-Duvalier periods.

Keywords:   race, diaspora, U.S. imperialism, Haitian literature, national politics, developing countries, extraterritorial forces, foreign policies, developed countries, Haiti, global capitalism, Duvalier, post-Duvalier
