Analysis Of Toussaint France By Girard

Decent Essays
Girard (2012), wrote from an historical point of view in which he gave an insight background on the importance of Jean-Jacques Dessalines being that he’s the first slave revolutionary leader of the Haitian Revolution. Girard informing a general educated audience, in particular historians, to contemporarily change their lens in which they once viewed him as a blood thirsty brute or just merely decisive and courageous but to recognise him as a more important figure to the likes of Toussaint Louverture . After all, he’s the father of the Independence. Girard appeals to the readers to not only focus on Dessalines achievements but also the consequence of his leadership and not to be so nationalistic.
