Rastafari? Rasta for You: Rastafarianism Explained

by Kelleyana Junique - £4.99  Athena Press Ltd (2004)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781844012695 | ISBN 10: 1844012697

Kelleyana Junique blows the smoke away from the questions many people have in their minds about Rastafarians (Rastas) and their life in Jamaica. What do they believe in? Who is Jah? Why do they revere Haile Selassie and Bob Marley? How do they live? How do they raise families? Do they work? Why are ganja and reggae/ragga music so important to the Rastas?
All in all, it's a peaceful picture that is presented here, of a people who acknowledge the differences in humanity but do not presume to judge. The author doesn't shy away from tricky issues like skylarkers, gargamels and single-parent families; but the image of rural joy in the middle of 'Babylon' abides, in this informative and entertaining guide to a misunderstood faith.
