In two characteristically brilliant lectures, delivered in 1978 and 1991 and published here for the first time, Paul Foot made an impassioned and compelling attempt to bring home to his audience some sense of the richness of the 'hidden history' of the Haitian Revolution. Through an inspired popularisation of C L R James's classic work, The Black Jacobins, the lectures showed the emancipation of the enslaved was fought for and won by the enslaved themselves. Yet the lectures also outline the importance of the outstanding revolutionary leadership represented by Toussaint Louverture.
