[ FREE PDF ] ⚆ Rastafari ♂ MOBI eBook or Kindle ePUB free
Ennis Edmonds does a fantastic job at explaining the Rastafarian faith, as well as the conditions that brought this faith together, as well as its influences on the world I also enjoyed the author s bravery in facing the inequality faced by women within the Rastafarian faith If you had one book to read to learn about Rastafarianism, then this is the book. Edmonds does a decent job covering historical and theological aspects of a religion that I d imagine is usually covered strictly from a social sciences perspective Good thematic range, although he repeats himself a lot. like all the avsi a good summary, lots of pointers to additional info, clear even if you re starting from 0 background knowlege on the topic, but not boring if you ve got a little context surveys history, politics, gender issues, and the arts. This short volume is remarkably thorough As someone who knew very little about Rastafari in the beginning, I was surprised by how easily I could discuss Rastafari after finishing Edmonds writing is clear and kept my attention I m obviously no expert in Rastafari now, but I m interested enough to continue reading about it Edmonds covers the origins, the beliefs, the lifestyles, the politics, and even the art of Rastafari people I couldn t ask for a better introduction.
