Back when I studied colonial British America in graduate school, I thought it was pretty cool to bring in Jamaica and Barbados as comparisons to the mainland colonies. This episode on the web of tension (great phrase, btw) in St. Domingue shows I didn't know the whole story - far from it! The tensions of creole vs. metropole, class vs. class, master vs. slave existed in the British American colonies, and to see them play out in the different economic and demographic setting of St. Domingue makes for a fascinating historical experiment. I am eager to learn about Haiti's history now. So far, it has shown one path of colonial development, but I expect it will also provide its own unique example of the revolutionary experience.
