*Istwa across the Water: Haitian History, Memory, and the Cultural *Imagination
(University Press of Florida, 2017) by Toni Pressley-Sanon explores Haitian
Vodoun in its broader contexts—sociological, historical, psychological,
philosophical, aesthetic—as methodology, liberatory tool, and approach to
existence.

Claudine Michel (editor, Journal of Haitian Studies) writes:
“Pressley-Sanon's important book demonstrates that Haitian Vodou is a
serious enterprise with its own phenomenology and epistemologies, and that
the religion's unique pragmatic dimensions offer initiatory answers to
otherwise unanswerable questions about Haiti's past, present, and future. A
must read.”

LeGrace Benson (author of *Arts and Religions of Haiti: How the Sun
Illuminates Under Cover of Darkness*) says that the book “reveals an
impressively rich cultural landscape inhabited by women and men whose
legendary resilience in the face of adversity clothes a ferocious
dedication to their identity as free people.”

*Toni Pressley-Sanon*, assistant professor of African and African American
studies at Eastern Michigan University, is the author of *The Haitian
Peasantry through Oral and Written Literature*.
