Haiti, Rising Flames from Burning Ashes is a brutally honest and precise historical analysis of Haiti. It is also a discussion of how the political system can be reformed to promote democracy, a vibrant economy, and cultural integration. The book begins with the assassination of the independence leader Jean-Jacques Dessalines in 1806, and continues through the three subsequent leaders, dubbed The Three Musketeers by the author, and their role in Haiti's current philosophical and structural makeup. In contrast to traditional theory, Haiti, Rising Flames from Burning Ashes explores the distribution of powers rather than the separation of powers as a solution to Haiti's political and cultural chaos.
