"The book also explores the massacre of ethnic Haitians in 1937 in the context of this peasant integration, showing how this violence arose out of tensions between local understandings of the Dominican nation in the frontier, a highly transnational and bicultural region, and constructs of a monoethnic nation emanating from the capital and urban cities."--Jacket." ;
