    Imagine that the five fingers of your hand represent the world s population The hand has 100 to share Today the thumb, representing the richest 20% of the world s population has 86 for itself The little finger has just 1 Almost 15 years after the publication of Aristide s compassionate, insightful text, the industrialized world remains largely ignorant of just how much our leaders have done to exacerbate the poverty plaguing developing nations like Haiti Though only roughly 80 pages in Imagine that the five fingers of your hand represent the world s population The hand has 100 to share Today the thumb, representing the richest 20% of the world s population has 86 for itself The little finger has just 1 Almost 15 years after the publication of Aristide s compassionate, insightful text, the industrialized world remains largely ignorant of just how much our leaders have done to exacerbate the poverty plaguing developing nations like Haiti Though only roughly 80 pages in length, Aristide s book offers valuable insight for understanding the harmful effects an increasingly globalized economy has had on poor nations and the exploitation these nation s endure through greedy practices like the International Monetary Fund disguised as relief Along with grim statistics and descriptions of domestic social prejudice, Aristide interweaves short vignettes of abandoned street children, devastated peasant farmers, and mothers selling soda in gourds in hopes of sending their children to school If you re looking for some perspective on globalization, this book is a great place to start

    I liked this book a lot It s short 80 pages so it only touches on issues rather than going deeper into them It s pretty heavily anti globalization and anti colonialism I liked how Aristide wove in stories, especially the ones about children who came to his foundation And I like how he recognizes that youth s voices are important and needrespect Aristide has a lot of great ideas, but he has been in power 3 times and he didn t put them into practice At one point in the book he acknow I liked this book a lot It s short 80 pages so it only touches on issues rather than going deeper into them It s pretty heavily anti globalization and anti colonialism I liked how Aristide wove in stories, especially the ones about children who came to his foundation And I like how he recognizes that youth s voices are important and needrespect Aristide has a lot of great ideas, but he has been in power 3 times and he didn t put them into practice At one point in the book he acknowledges this he describes talking to a woman and saying that she was poor before and she is still poor, so why does she still support him I don t remember what the answer was but it didn t really satisfy me

    Aristide s reputation has been soiled by his enemies People argue that the power of his position ultimately corrupted this former priest who led an uprising of poor Haitians Whether there is truth in these claims or not, Eyes of the Heart is one of the most profound examinations of the effects of globalism and the resilience of the Haitian people Aristide shows his compassion for his people and the promise of the future.


  5. Guillermo Galvan Guillermo Galvan says:

    A very short book with a lot of heart It s the kind of book you wishpeople would read It s humanizing and beautiful I really wish it was longer but I suppose Astride was only concerned with getting out his message of Seeking a path for the poor in the age of Globalization Pick this one up and then give it to a friend and ask him to do the same 5 stars, for sure.


  6. Scott Scott says:

    Whether Aristide committed the crimes he is often accused of is up for debate but regardless this recollection of the impact other sovereign nations have had on Haiti throughout history is enlightening to understand where they are today.


  7. Sharon Sharon says:

    Short but powerful, this book provides a brief introduction to issues surrounding development economic, social, educational in Haiti It strives to dignify the poor, in highlighting the humanity inherent in everyone Set aside two hours and read this.


  8. Alex Enachioaie Alex Enachioaie says:

    Inspiring read but would have liked to see a longerdetailed book from this otherwise very interesting man.


  9. Naomi Naomi says:

    A luminous text that continues to inspire, 13 years after publication, Aristide s analysis of Haiti s hopes and woes remains significant.
