Masters of the crossroads
A novel of Haiti
Madison Smartt Bell   (More from this author)
Roman
 
Masters of the crossroads - Haitian Book Centre - Haitian Books in Creole, English and French, francophone litterature - Cliquer pour agrandir Continuing his epic trilogy of the Haitian slave uprising, Madison Smartt Bellís Master of the Crossroads delivers a stunning portrayal of Toussaint Louverture, former slave, military genius and liberator of Haiti, and his struggle against the great European powers to free his people in the only successful slave revolution in history. At the outset, Toussaint is a second-tier general in the Spanish army, which is supporting the rebel slavesí fight against the French. But when Toussaint is betrayed by his former allies and the commanders of the Spanish army, he reunites his army with the French, wresting vital territories and manpower from Spanish control. With his army one among several factions, Toussaint eventually rises as the ultimate victor as he wards off his enemies to take control of the French colony and establish a new constitution.

Bellís grand, multifaceted novel shows a nation, splintered by actions and in the throes of chaos, carried to liberation and justice through the undaunted tenacity of one incredible visionary.
