Summary
Following All Souls' Rising and Master of the Crossroads, Madison Smartt Bell gives us the climactic final chapter in the life of Toussaint Louverture, the leader of the only successful slave revolution in history. Weaving historical fact with fiction, this volume spans the final phase of Toussaint's career and paints a portrait of a new society breaking forth from the chrysalis of a revolution, of the vision that impelled Toussaint to create a society based on principle and idealism, and of the dreadful compromises he was forced to make in order to preserve it.
