The Rastafarians - Leonard Barrett.

The classic work on the history and beliefs of the Rastafarians, whose roots of protest go back to the seventeenth-century maroon societies of escaped slaves in Jamaica. Based on an extensive study of the Rastafarians, their history, their ideology, and their influence in Jamaica, The Rastafarians is an important contribution to the sociology of religion and to our knowledge of the variety of religious expressions that have grown up during the West African Diaspora in the Western Hemisphere. The Rastafarians - Leonard Barrett.

Setting the Rastafarians in the context o. .colonial exploitation, Barrett shows how the cult has been nourished on grinding poverty, examines its belief system, dynamics, rituals, art and music, and its ‘ambivalent routinization’ within Jamaican society. Students of religion and sociology, fans of reggae music, and the general reader will gain much from this unusual study.
