Aristide: A Theological and Political Introduction examines the theological ideas, democratic ideals, and moral vision of Jean-Bertrand Aristide. It also explores how his theology has influenced his politics of solidarity and social activism on behalf of the working class and the poor in Haiti, and the implications for those living on the margins of society. The book seeks to answer three questions: what is the relationship between theology, ethics, and social activism and transformation in the writings of Aristide? What is the relationship between (political) theology and defensive violence in Aristide's thought in the struggle for democracy and human rights in Haiti? Or can a theology of peace and a theology of bellicosity and violence coexist? Celucien L. Joseph also considers Aristide's efforts to foster democratic change, development, and human flourishing in the context of Haitian society.
