520    Half a dozen years after the deadliest earthquake in the 
       history of the Western Hemisphere struck Haiti, the island
       nation remains in crisis, but the international community 
       no longer seems interested. This immersive and engrossing 
       book, based on five years of research and scores of 
       interviews translated from Haitian Kreyol, gives voice to 
       the continuing struggle of Haitian people to reconstruct 
       their nation from the devastation of the earthquake, and 
       from many decades of political and economic disaster.  The
       earthquake killed more than 200,000, rendered more than a 
       million and a half homeless, and wiped out what little 
       infrastructure existed in the country. But prior to the 
       quake, half the country was illiterate and two-thirds of 
       Haitians lived in poverty. This book makes clear the long 
       genesis of the ongoing crisis and illuminates the depths 
       of the continuing problems, and does so through some of 
       the most marginal and least-heard people in the world.
