My New Book on Joseph Anténor Firmin!

Look what I just received in the mail today: author copies of my new book with DrPaul Camy Mocombe from Routledge (May 2021)

This is the first published book (academic monograph) in the English language on the great Haitian anthropologist and intellectual Joseph Anténor Firmin. I am thankful for Dr. Paul Mocombe for responding to my call to edit this volume with me, and I acknowledge the enormous contributions of those who have contributed book chapters. You work is not in vain!!!

Also, I thank the good people of Routledge, especially the wonderful senior acquisitions editor (Jennifer) who understood the value of this book when I submitted the proposal to her, for publishing this important and much-needed work on this influential Caribbean thinker.

Finally, to Dr. Bertin Louis : my friend, academic mentor, and great Haitian-American cultural anthropologist and scholar-activist: thanks for your constructive feedback, advise, and friendship.

***A big shout out goes to the incomparable translators (my dear friend) Nathan H. Dize and Siobhan Meï for translating two important chapters from French to English.

Black and Africana Studies Scholars: here is the book you’ve been waiting for your courses; order a copy, and assign it in your classes 🙂
