(Eller, Anne) In We Dream Together: Dominican Independence, Haiti, and the Fight for Caribbean Freedom (Duke University Press), Assistant Professor of History at Yale, Anne Eller, breaks with dominant narratives of conflict between the Dominican Republic and Haiti by tracing the complicated history of Dominican emancipation and independence between 1822 and 1865. Eller moves beyond the small body of writing by Dominican elites that often narrates Dominican nationhood to craft inclusive, popular histories of identity, community, and freedom, summoning sources that range from trial records and consul reports to poetry and song.
