Book challenges readers to question freedom and society’s elitism
HOUMA, La., Aug. 05, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- In his 2019 dissertation, “Slavery, Religion & Regime” (published by Xlibris), Phillip J. Linden Jr., examined the role of slavery and slave trading in the founding of America and challenged readers to be critical and question society’s elitism.
This year, Linden launches a new press campaign for the book to reopen a discourse on the systems of slavery in the United States and around the world.
“Slavery, Religion & Regime” challenges readers to question the basis of a society founded on freedom for the elite and the subjugation and enslavement of natives and imported victims of slavery and slave trading. The purpose of the book is to establish a critical theological interpretation of the interplay among the significant political, economic and religious expressions of modernity in the founding of industrial societies, then and today.
Drawing from 50 years of studying the topic, Linden sheds light on the violence and dehumanization process in colonial America, along with the killing of natives, which extends up to the present day.
