With the heightened interest in Haiti following the earthquake of 2010, and the troubled state of its institutions in the decades before that, the world community has received a barrage of information regarding the country, much of it based on stereotypes and ignorance. This title provides comprehensive bibliographic information on the development of one of the earliest independent countries in the Western Hemisphere, from its colonial past through independence to the 21st century. In both the introductory material and in the bibliographic selections, this bilingual work emphasizes the impact of its colonial "mother country," France, and of its most important "neighbor," the United States, on Haitian constitutional and legal development-- Publisher.
Janousek's new edition of this immensely valuable work will simplify the process of finding excerpts and commentary on every Supreme Court decision, as well as the texts, whether in government documents or reprinted in other sources, of the decisions themselves. This third volume in the series covers the literature from 1980 to 1995, indexing discussion and analysis in both monographs and periodicals of Court decisions from its earliest days.
