After Haiti was struck by a devastating earthquake on January 12, 2010, aid workers and offers of support poured in from around the world.

Haiti may well be the only country in the Americas with a last name. References to the land of the black Jacobins are almost always followed by the phrase the poorest country in the Western Hemisphere. To that dubious distinction, on 12 January 2010 Haiti added another, when it was hit by the most devastating natural disaster... more...
- Taylor and Francis 2012; US$ 39.95
Despite Haiti's proximity to the United States, and its considerable importance to our own history, Haiti barely registered in the historic consciousness of most Americans until recently.
