Prefaced by EUSI KWAYAMA: Author, Brother Horace Campbell, have numerous articles, papers and essays wich have been published in various journals in Britain, North America, the Carribean and Africa.

Since 1981, he has been teaching at the University of Dar-es-Salaam in Tanzania, East Africa. 

ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS: This study of the Rastafari stemmed from a long period of active political and intellectual work among blacks and Rastafari in Jamaica, Canada, the Eastern Caribbean and the United Kingdom.

In essence the study is a mirror of the Pan African traditions of the ex-slaves and this work was inspired by all those who urged me to merge my training in research and writing with the insights gained from living and struggling in the Pan world. 

BOOK DESCRIPTION by EUSI KWAYAMA : Rasta and Resistance is a study of the Rastafarian Movement in all its manifestations, from its evolution in the hills of Jamaica to its present manifestations in the streets of Birmingham and the Shashamane Settlement in Ethiopia.

It traces the cultural, political and spiritual sources of this movement of resistance, highlighting the quest for change among an oppressed people. This book serves to break the intellectual traditions which placed the stamp of millenarianism on Rasta.

Absence of a political enquiry into the Rastafari of the Caribbean has always been an uncomfortable gap in the record of the Caribbean revolution. Now Horace Campbell has bade a big step towards the filling of that gap.

This is not to suggest that Caribbean writers and thinkers (we should not confuse the two groups) have not done much investigation of the Rastafari way of life with all the clarity and depth which their areas of investigation permitted them; some have also ventured into the political dominion.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR: Horace Cambell was born in Montego Bay, Jamaica in 1945. He is a writer, teacher and activist who has taught in Africa, the Carribean, Britain and North America.

His writings include (books such as): "Four Essays on Neo-colonialism In Uganda" and "Pan-Africanism: The Struggle Against Neo-colonialism and Imperialism" as well as numerous articles, papers and essays wich have been published in various journals in Britain, North America, the Carribean and Africa.

Since 1981, he has been teaching at the University of Dar-es-Salaam in Tanzania, East Africa.

He has been struggling for some years to apply the scientific theory of society to the reality of African and Caribbean politics, and in the process has avoided the creation of false gods.
