Review by

A book that contains a lot of good information on the Rastafari movement. A bit dated, but a very crucial read because of its analysis regarding Rastafari in relation to the politics and history of Jamaica.

Review by

I was interested in a good introduction to Jamaican and Rastafarian history, and this book definitely filled the bill. It provides a short history of the island and details the evolution of the Rastafarian movement as an extension of its history and culture.Overall, it was a bit dry and is probably somewhat dated now (since it was written in the 80's), but I found it intriguing.
