You can now pre-order my new book:
“Thinking in Public: Faith, Secular Humanism, and Development in Jacques Roumain” (Wipf and Stock Publishers, May 2017). pp. 482 + index
It’s coming out in May, 2017.
This is perhaps the most important book I have written on Haitian intellectual history and Black Radical Tradition. It is the sequel of “From Toussaint to Price-Mars: Rhetoric, Race, and Religion in Haitian Thought.”
The third volume in the Haitian intellectual tradition series is on Jean-Bertrand Aristide, which I have entitled “Aristide: A Theological and Political Introduction to His Life and Thought” (under contract with Fortress Press, 2018). The fourth volume is a single-authored book on Jean Price-Mars (under contract with Wpft and Stock Publishers, 2018). Finally, the last volume in the series will be on Joseph Antenor Firmin.
To read my critical analysis and reflections on these thinkers, I invite you to read the following published peer-reviewed articles:
