Summary "Michel Laguerre briefly delineates the history of the Haitian diaspora in the United States in the nineteenth century, but this book primarily concerns itself with the contemporary period, and more specifically with the diasporic enclave in New York City. It uses a critical transnational perspective to convey the adaptation of immigrants in American society and the border-crossing practices they engage in as they maintain their relations with the homeland."--Jacket.
