Haiti Fights Back: The Life and Legacy of Charlemagne Péralte is the first US study of the politician and caco leader (guerrilla fighter) who fought against the US occupation of Haiti from 1915-1934. Alexis locates rare multilingual sources from both nations and documents Péralte’s political movement and citizens’ protests. The interdisciplinary work offers a new approach to studies of the US invasion period by documenting how Caribbean people fought back.
