H-Haiti readers will be interested in a roundtable series published on the African American Intellectual Society's Blog on Neil Roberts’s Freedom as Marronage (University of Chicago Press, 2015). In particular, the third post by Annette Joseph-Gabriel, places Roberts’s work in conversation with C.L.R. James’s classic The Black Jacobins. Joseph-Gabriel is an Assistant Professor of French and faculty affiliate in Africana Studies at the University of Arizona.
The following is an excerpt of the post:

Anne Eller has recently reviewed "A Colony in Crisis," a digital humanities project about the Saint-Domingue grain crisis of 1789, run by Nathan H. Dize, Abby Broughton, and Kelsey Corlett-Rivera. Congratulations to the entire team and collaborators!
H-Haiti's own Julia Gaffield has just been awarded the Boucher Prize by the French Colonial Historical Society for her book, Haitian Connections in the Atlantic World: Recognition After Revolution (2015): http://uncpress.unc.edu/books/13368.html
I bought this and gave it to a friend who runs a daycare. She cares for a mix of Haitian American and other children. My only reservation about the book is that it has only two images of women. We see indigenous armies composed virtually of men only. My understanding is that many women fought in the revolution.
Frantz Derenoncourt, Jr. 's New Book: “Haiti: The First Black Republic” is a powerful historical work on the history, struggles, and subsequent victory of the Haitian people. This detailed account of how Haiti overcame European and French rule is a must read.
