A reply to the reviews of my 2012 book

        My 2012 book "Paramilitarism and the Assault on Democracy in Haiti" provided a detailed documentation and investigation of paramilitarism in Haiti in the lead up to and following the 2004 coup d'├ętat.   It looked at the manner in which paramilitary groups (and those facilitating them) altered from the Duvlierist era up through the early twenty first century, ensuring a reproduction of the coercive paramilitary apparatus.
