520    How was the character of science shaped by the colonial 
       experience? In turn, how might we make sense of how 
       science contributed to colonialism? Saint Domingue (now 
       Haiti) was the world's richest colony in the eighteenth 
       century and home to an active society of science--one of 
       only three in the world, at that time. In this deeply 
       researched and pathbreaking study of the colony, James E. 
       McClellan III first raised his incisive questions about 
       the relationship between science and society that 
       historians of the colonial experience are still grappling 
       with today. Long considered rare, the book is no.
