Liberation Theology at the Crossroads

Democracy or Revolution?

Paul E. Sigmund

Drawing on both English and Spanish sources, this critical study examines the history, method, and doctrines of Liberation Theology. Sigmund considers the movement's origins in political circumstances in Latin America; provides case studies of its role in such events as the revolution and counter-revolution in Chile; and examines the thought of the major liberation theologians and the position of the Vatican.
