Summary
"This anthology explores Rastafari religion, culture, and politics in Jamaica and other parts of the African diaspora. An Afro-Caribbean religious and cultural movement that sprang from the mean streets of Kingston, Jamaica, in the 1930s, today Rastafari has close to one million adherents. The basic message of Rastafari - the dismantling of all oppressive institutuions and the liberation of humankind - strongly appeals even to the non-believers who are captivated by reggae music, the lyrics, and the 'immortal spirit' of its enormously popular practitioner, Bob Marley."--Book cover
