The Ransom: A Look Under the Hood
Thousands of pages of original documents, and hundreds of books and articles. Here are the historians and researchers on which the Haiti project drew.
This series was the work of four reporters and more than a dozen researchers. Over the course of more than a year, we examined thousands of pages of original documents found in public and private archives and libraries, mainly in Haiti, the United States and France. We also read hundreds of books and articles, from tomes published shortly after the Haitian revolution began in 1791 to the most recent, which arrived in bookstores in France just months ago. We cannot cite them all. But we do want to offer readers an idea of how we researched this series and came to the conclusions we did, as well as to give credit to historians and researchers whose work formed essential building blocks for our stories.
