Migrant Revolution offers an overview of twentieth-century Haitian literature, placing its rich tradition in the context of transnational anti-colonial politics. Kaussen argues that the anti-colonial politics of Haitian modernist literature is based on the philosophies of human rights that drove the Haitian Revolution and, further, that Haitian literary modernity has continually challenged the world colonial order, including the contemporary era of globalization.
