Susan Buck-Morss

Hegel, Haiti, and Universal History
(University of Pittsburgh Press, 2009)

In this path-breaking work, Susan Buck-Morss draws new connections between history, inequality, social conflict, and human emancipation. Winner of the Frantz Fanon Book Award, Hegel, Haiti, and Universal History offers a fundamental reinterpretation of Hegel’s master-slave dialectic by linking it to the Haitian Revolution. Examining the startling connections between the two, the author challenges us to widen the boundaries of our historical imagination. Susan Buck-Morss is a distinguished professor of political science at the Graduate Center.
