Chapter Summary: Chapter Two is devoted to providing the reader further context for the history. This time, we'll try to smash the reader's preconceptions of Haiti by drawing pictures of the economic, political, racial, physical, and social environment of Haiti in 1789. We will present these pictures in the light of Americans' current and historical perspective. At the end of these two chapters, I want the reader to be thinking as if he were a resident of Saint-Domingue in the years before the revolution.
