About the Author

Alex Dupuy is professor of sociology at Wesleyan University.


Dupuy, a recognized authority on Haiti, tracks the island's troubled transition to democracy up to the present. . . . This is well-written: an important book with a clear theoretical orientation. Highly recommended. * CHOICE *
A meticulously researched text. . . . The Prophet and Power is a key source for understanding the intricate set of factors that contributed to the dynamics of this turbulent period and an important contribution to Haitian and Caribbean studies. * Caribbean Studies, January-June 2009 *
An important, original, and comprehensive contribution to the literature on contemporary Haitian politics in particular, and on democratization and globalization in general. Dupuy elucidates with intelligence the Aristide phenomenon and does an excellent job in showing how both domestic and international forces intersected to generate the current crisis. -- Robert Fatton, Jr., University of Virginia
