Pressestimmen"Cornel West: The Politics of Redemption is a bold and courageous text that insightfully defends the thesis that liberation theology is at the core of West's synoptic and existentially engaged philosophical corpus. Rejecting a narrow conception of theology, Cowan provides a hermeneutic lens through which to make sense of West's pragmatist and Marxist leanings, and his prophetic Christianity. This book is a must read." George Yancy, McAnulty Fellow at Duquesne University
