Description


Using a variant of structuration theory, what Paul C. Mocombe calls phenomenological structuralism, this work explores and highlights how the African religion of Vodou and its ethic gave rise to the Haitian spirit of communism and the "counter-plantation system" (Jean Casimir's term) in the provinces and mountains of Haiti.
