Books on Haiti

With the current spotlight on the tragedy in Haiti, a lot of people are asking for book suggestions to help them to better understand the history of Haiti.  The bloggers over at The Book Beast have a great list up here. It also includes music and a documentary.

To this list, I would offer a word of warning. While Madison Smartt Bell has a great, award-winning trilogy about Haiti, his books, like the country's history, are violent, and may be a bit too graphic for some readers.
