Description - Liberation Theology after the End of History by Daniel Bell
What has become of Latin American liberation theology in the wake of capitalism's triumph? What has happened to the 'irruption of the poor'? Is it dead? More importantly, has Christianity been exhausted as a font of resistance to capitalism? What resources of hope remain? Liberation Theology after the End of History assesses the impact of Christian resistance to capitalism in Latin America, and the implications of the theological debates that have emerged through its evolution. Using the postmodern critical theory of Deleuze and Foucault, Daniel M. Bell investigates the nature of capitalism, its effect upon human desire and the response of the Church to this social phenomenon, resulting in the most thorough account to date of the rise, failure and future prospects of Latin American liberation theology.
