Rastafari: Roots and Ideology

by Barry Chevannes

​​Interviews with thiry converts from the 1930s and 1940s are a component of Barry Chevannes's book, a look into the origins and practices of Rastafarianism. From the direct accounts of these early members, he is able to reconstruct pivotal episodes in Rastafarian history to offer a look into a subgroup of Jamaican society whose beliefs took root in the social unrest of the 1930s.
