The leader of the only successful slave revolt in history,
Toussaint Louverture is seen by many to be one of the greatest
anti-imperialist fighters who ever lived. Born into slavery on a
Caribbean plantation, he was able to break from his bondage to lead
an army of freed African slaves to victory against the professional
armies of France, Spain and Britain in the Haitian Revolution of
1791-1804. In this biography, Louverture's fascinating life is
explored through the prism of his radical politics. It champions
this `black Robespierre' whose revolutionary legacy had inspired
people and movements in the two centuries since his death. For
anyone interested in the roots of modern-day resistance movements
and black political radicalism, Louverture's extraordinary life
provides the perfect starting point.
