The Haitian Revolution was the first slave rebellion to have a successful outcome, leading to the establishment of Haiti as a free black republic and paving the way for the emancipation of slaves in the rest of the French Empire and the world. In this broad selection of documents, the authors clarify for students the complex political, economic, and racial issues surrounding the revolution and the wave of revolts elsewhere in the French Caribbean.
