9780043011645: Rastaman: Rastafarian Movement in England

In the mid-1970s the Rastafarian movement first appeared on the streets of England and provoked suspicion and anxiety. Ernest Ellis Cashmore penetrates the mystique of a movement, whose policy of total non-contact with whites is often an obstacle to understanding. Cashmore analyzes the genesis and development of the movement, reactions to it and what it means to its members. Cashmore delineates a history that begins in sixteenth-century Jamaica tracing it to the streets of Handsworth and Brixton; from the Rastas' puzzling relationship with their reluctant prophet Marcus Garvey to their intriguing liaison with the punk rock movement.
