— LSE Review of Books
“While the author seeds his book with historical context, his strong narrative style emphasizes individual people... who work in the informal economy and with whom he becomes fast friends while meticulously studying their lives.”
— Diplomat & International Canada
"In There is No More Haiti: Life and Death in Port-au-Prince, Greg Beckett combines a decade of ethnographic research with a novelist’s sensitivity to style to create a deeply empathetic and theoretically expansive portrait of urban life in Haiti between 2002 and 2006. . . . Overall, the book is a remarkable contribution to Haitian studies, presented with such accessible and beautiful prose that it is suitable both for experts and undergraduates."
"At once poignant and urgent, There is No More Haiti develops a slow and intensively empathic ethnography that unfolds . . . through, and despite, a furiously rapid, chaotic historical moment marked by multiple crises."
