The Haitian Creole Language: History, Structure, Use, and Education
(Lexington Books/Rowman & Littlefield, 2010)
This is the first book dealing with the central role of Creole in Haiti and the Haitian diaspora, especially in the U.S. diaspora. Long overshadowed by French, Creole was recognized as an official language of Haiti only a little over twenty years ago. Chapters contributed by the leading scholars in the study of Creole dispel myths about the language, and discussions of Haitian and Haitian Creole history provide a foundation for educators, service providers, policy makers, social scientists, and language and literature scholars to understand Creole in its historical, social, political, educational, and economic developmental contexts. Arthur K. Spears (Prof., City) is on the doctoral faculty in anthropology.
