Thinking in Public
Faith, Secular Humanism, and Development in Jacques Roumain
Imprint: Pickwick Publications
"Celucien Joseph offers a definitive study of Jacques Roumain as an engaged 'native intellectual,' whose novels, essays, and public intellectual interventions in the Haitian cultural sphere should be regarded of global importance. Joseph's thorough analysis of Roumain's Marxist, anti-clerical, anti-capitalistic, pro-peasant, spiritual, Kreyol, community-focused perspectives re-awakens for a contemporary audience the genius and insight of a sleeping giant in a world still yearning for vision, transformation, and healing in the wake of (neo)colonialism's violent imprint."
