This is a short collection of articles written between 1985 and 1988 in Haiti. This time frame corresponds to the last months of the Duvalier regime, and the ensuing "troubled times" as the country struggled to reach a form of democracy. They were either published in a local bi-monthly paper, The Haiti Times, or submitted to press agencies including The Associated Press (AP), United Press International (UPI) and South North News Service (SNNS) for which the author was a correspondent. Earlier articles will be added gradually when time (mine) allows.

The sole purpose of these pages is to contribute to the repository of texts on Haiti and be of help to researchers and historians interested in that period of Haitian history.

This material, except for the photographs, can be freely reproduced with mention of the source; a mention of its use would be appreciated. As for the photographs, they are protected by copyright and cannot be, in any way, shape or form, be reproduced without the author's authorization.
