Summary:

Once an obscure group of outcasts from the ghettoes of West Kingston, Jamaica, the Rastafarians have transformed themselves into a vibrant movement, firmly grounded in Jamaican society and beyond. In Rastafari, Ennis Barrington Edmonds provides a compelling portrait of the Rastafarian phenomenon and chronicles how this group, much maligned and persecuted, became a dominant cultural force in the world today. Edmonds charts the evolution of the relationship between Rastafari and the wider Jamaican society, from confrontation and repression to grudging tolerance and eventually to cultural integration. Edmonds focuses in particular on the internal development of Rastafarianism as a social movement, with its network of "houses" (small, informal groups that form around leading Rastas) and "mansions" (larger, more communal associations), to track the process of this strikingly successful integration. He further demonstrates how Rastafarian artistic creativity, especially in fashioning the music and message of reggae, was a significant factor in the transition of Rastas from the status of outcasts to the position of cultural bearers.

Summary:

Kingston, 3 décembre 1976. Deux jours avant un concert en faveur de la paix organisé par le parti au pouvoir, dans un climat d'extrême tension politique, sept hommes armés font irruption au domicile de Bob Marley. Le chanteur est touché à la poitrine et au bras. Pourtant, à la date prévue, il réunit 80 000 personnes lors d'un concert historique Construit comme une vaste fresque épique abritant plusieurs voix et des dizaines de personnages, ce livre monumental, couronné par le Man Booker Prize 2015, nous entraîne en Jamaïque et aux États-Unis, des années 1970 à nos jours. Convoquant hommes politiques, journalistes, agents de la CIA, barons de la drogue et membres de gangs, il s'interroge avec force sur les éternelles questions du pouvoir, de l'argent, de la politique et de la violence du monde. S'affirmant ici comme le fils spirituel de Toni Morrison et James Ellroy, Marlon James signe un livre hors normes, tour à tour sombre, drôle, cru, et toujours passionnant, signe d'une rare ambition littéraire et d'un talent prodigieux. « Un roman à la fois terrifiant, lyrique et magnifique, écrit par l'un des jeunes auteurs les plus talentueux d'aujourd'hui. » Russell Banks

Summary:

Dead Woman Pickney chronicles life stories of growing up in Jamaica from 1943 to 1965 and contains both personal experience and history, told with stridency and humour. The author’s coming of age parallels the political stages of Jamaica’s moving from the richest Crown colony of Great Britain to an independent nation within the British Commonwealth of Nations. Taking up the haunting memories of childhood, along with her astonishment at persistent racial marginalization, both locally and globally, the author sets out to construct a narrative that at once explains her own origins in the former slave society of Jamaica and traces the outsider status of Africa and its peoples. The author’s quest to understand the absence of her mother and her mother’s people from her life is at the heart of this narrative. The title, Dead Woman Pickney, is in Jamaican patois, and its meaning unfolds throughout the narrative. It begins with the author’s childhood question of what a mother is, followed by the realization of the vulnerability of a child without its mother’s protection. The term “pickney” was the name for slave children on sugar plantations, and post-emancipation the term was retained for the descendants of enslaved Africans and the children of black women fathered by slavers. The author struggles through her life to discover the identity of her mother in the face of silence from her father’s brutal family. A wonderful resource for teachers of history, social studies, cultural studies, and literature, this work could be used as a starting point to discuss issues of diasporic identities, colonialism, racism, impact of slavery, and Western imperialism around the world. It is also an engaging read for those interested in memoir and life writing.
