Bob Marley Lyrics of Resistance

This book is the extension of a course on Bob Marley, which I teach at Arizona State University. It brings together some of the lectures and thoughts I have expressed both in and out of the classroom on the life and music of Marley. The book explores his lyrics as political text and reads them as products of the political realities of the periods of decolonization and early independence in Jamaica and the wider Anglophone Caribbean. Further, it locates Marley and his lyrics in the Caribbean’s Black radical tradition, particularly its resistance and protest dimensions.

Anglophone Caribbean Politics

This book is an introductory political portrait of the English-speaking Caribbean or the Anglophone Caribbean. It provides information and insights into the region’s political evolution from the 1930s to the present. Topics covered include Decolonization and Independence, Black Power, Regional Integration, Ethnicity and Politics, Resistance and Revolution and Political Leadership. The book is written particularly with students in mind, especially those with little or no knowledge of the region. It is by no means an exhaustive account of the region’s politics, but it offers the reader enough to make sense of this small but complex collection of small island and mainland states.
