Beyond RastafarI; An Historical and Theological Introduction

Marzia A. Coltri (Author)
Available

Description

This book is an invitation to reflect on how a minority culture emerged from within Third World liberation movements. It considers not only the historical and cultural journey between Ethiopia and Jamaica, but also the psychological dynamics of subalterns between the East and the West.
In this work, the author discusses the various beliefs and ideologies of the RastafarI movement in relation to Ethiopia, and challenges the RastafarI misogynistic attitude by rehabilitating the position of women within the movement through the figure of the Queen of Sheba.
