Anita Waters, Denison University

«Fascinating and a pleasure to read. Charles Price makes a distinctive contribution by detailing how a Rastafari cultural gestalt emerges. Price shows how cultural patterns can have multiple origins, influences, and significance. Rastafari is a new and necessary reframing of Rastafari culture.»

Richard Salter, Hobart and William Smith Colleges

«This welcome volume explores the growth and persistence of Rastafarianism in Jamaica. Price . . . provides an exceptionally empathetic account of the faith, and in his sophisticated analysis he successfully integrates the 'small acts' of history with the 'big ideas' they have come to signify.»

S. D. Glazier, Yale University

«Well-written and engaging . . . breaks new ground both in the data it analyzes and the theory it advances. Price deftly demystifies the ‘sudden’ appearance of Rastafari by showing how it is rooted in notions of black identity and African redemption.»

Ennis B. Edmonds, Donald L. Rogan Professor of Religious Studies, Kenyon College
