Item Description...
Dr. Francois 'Papa Doc' Duvalier, former self-appointed President-for-life of Haiti, was the most brutal tyrant of his time. His pervasive secret police, the Tontons Macoute, were literally connoisseurs of terror. For more than three decades, they struck terror into the impoverished people of Haiti, in the most macabre way. In this outstanding account of Duvalier's life, the full horror of the Haitian nightmare is laid bare. Disappearances of entire families in the night, public execution of political foes, summary killings of the peasantry and a succession of failed assassinations on Duvalier's life, provide the theme of a demon-possessed president. 'Papa Doc' was the embodiment of evil in the most sinister form. There was voodoo and his own involvement in strange rites, his apparent supernatural powers and reputed immortality. Using voodoo to suppress an entire nation of 7 million souls, 'Papa Doc' became the political ogre of the age, a trained country doctor transmuted by power into a sinister killer his people considered indestructible. He exuded this evil image even in his appearance. He dressed always in dark apparel, from top to toe; he appeared funereal promoting death rather than life. His propensity for Machiavellian intrigue and ruthlessness was limitless. Using a spy trial in Port-au-Prince in 1968 as the foundation of this electrifying tale, the bewitching and terrifying reality of Duvalier's Haiti, the author reveals a spellbinding account of the macabre regime in one of the world's most haunted lands.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
new look at the caribbean tyrant  Nov 18, 2007
There a few books regarding the life and times of Francois Duvalier. This one is absolutely fixed with the idea of developing the duvalier story along with one of the most famous cases of political prisoners of that time.

This of course take away the book from the cronological perspective (which I regret) but allows us to take a pretty good look at how the sistem worked during papa doc's years.

This book brings also more details about the last years of duvalier, which are not covered in previous books, although I think that more is needed.

Good book with very interesting stories to tell.
