I suspect that the best perspective to understand Haiti can be gained by reading Naomi Klein’s classic, The Shock Doctrine:  The Rise of Disaster Capitalism. The behavior of the US in the days that followed the earthquake is completely understandable when viewed through the lens of Klein’s critical analysis.

Here are some sites which focus on Haiti and the tremendous needs of that courageous people.  I will post more sites as I come across them, or you can contact me if you need more information.
