Fault Lines by Beverly Bell is a Cornell University Press book which examines Haitian social movements and their organizing strategies that have pursued a just and equitable society from the 1750s, when the slave resistance began, until today. A combination of stories, investigative journalism, and interviews, the book also looks at the strong communities and an age-old gift culture that have helped Haitians survive, especially in the wake of the 2010 earthquake.
Beverly Bell, coordinator of the economic and social justice group Other Worlds, is also associate fellow at the Institute for Policy Studies and visiting scholar at the University of KwaZulu-Natal. A writer and political organizer, she has worked with grassroots movements in Haiti for more than three decades.
