    Book Description: 

    This book, Rasta, Babylon, Jamming: The Music and Culture of Roots Culture, has been a long time in coming. In the late 1970s, mainstream publishers didn’t want any part of a music that spoke against colonialism, capitalism or social injustice. Viewed as a transcendent resource book, capable of enlightening and informing and providing a point of entry into the musical legacy of Rastafarians. Its message is one of a vital Afrocentric themes and the Rasta doctrine of resistance, political self-determinism and black survival. This is reggae at its best with no gimmicks, pure and unadulterated. This is reggae that belongs to everybody.
