Ethnic Studies Review
Those unfamiliar with the Dominican Republic and Haiti would probably think that the two countries with their different languages and cultures are distinct and separate historically as they are culturally.

Matibag demonstrates that the two cultures and nations are intertwined at a level that would surprise even the informed scholar.
