Soul Rebels. The Rastafari

Prospect Heights, IL: Waveland Press, Inc., 1993. Early Printing. Octavo, publisher’s stiff illustrated paper wraps.

Early printing of anthropologist William F. Lewis’s survey of the religious and political movement. The product of historical research and observational ethnography, the text explores the movement's evolution from its early history with details on urban adaptation in Kingston, the relationship between the group and the Jamaican State, expansion into the West and Ethiopia, symbolism, legal tensions, and more. Notably, the book was a product of the "Rasta Renaissance'" that swept the country in the early 1990s led by Jamaican DJ Tony Rebel and singer Luciano, sparking a resurgence of traditional reggae principles. Illustrated with black-and-white photos; with an introduction by anthropologist Serena Nanda, and bibliography. Edited by communications scholar Joan Young Gregg. Fourth printing. Light creasing and edgewear to waps. Very good. Item #8868
