Books By Author Laurent Dubois
Banjo, Hardback (March 2016)
American slaves drew on memories of African musical traditions to construct instruments from carved-out gourds covered with animal skin. Providing a sense of rootedness, solidarity, and consolation, banjo picking became an essential part of black plantation life, and its unmistakable sound remains versatile and enduring today, Laurent Dubois shows.
Haiti, Paperback (January 2013)
Maligned and misunderstood, the nation has long been blamed by many for its own wretchedness. In this book, the author depicts the isolation and impoverishment that followed the 1804 rebellion: the crushing indemnities imposed by the former French rulers, which initiated a cycle of debt.
Soccer Empire, Paperback (February 2011)
Illuminates the connections between soccer empire and sport by tracing the story of World Cup soccer, from the Cup's French origins in the 1930s to Africa and the Caribbean and back again. This title recounts the lives of two of soccer's most electrifying players, Zidane and his outspoken teammate, Lilian Thuram.
