What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

Monique Bedasse has done an amazing thing: she has taken what is presumed to be primarily a cultural phenomenon and shown its real-world, trans-spatial dimensions. Beautifully and movingly written, this is a refreshingly candid appraisal of the relationship between Jamaica and Tanzania through Rastafarian ideology, and the ways in which diasporic and continental African actors come together in a context of anticolonial struggle."—Michael A. Gomez, New York University

Jah Kingdom is the work of a talented, imaginative historian whose innovative approach to Rastafari and black internationalism captures a neglected stream in the long history of Pan-African political aspirations and anticolonial struggles. Through prodigious research, oral interviews, and a conceptually rich historiographical engagement, Monique Bedasse reveals a wide range of alternative political imaginaries that ultimately facilitated Tanzania assuming a central place in African diasporic politics and Rastafarian decolonial aspirations."—Minkah Makalani, University of Texas at Austin
