Synopsis: This is a book about an extraordinarily rich and varied culture - a culture in which 'most of the religio-political movements of the world are to be found epitomised in some form'. In tracing the Jamaican people's search for an identity through these movements, this book places the modern cult of Rastafarianism in the broadest of historical contexts.
Obeah, Christ and Rastaman reflects the author's careful, scholarly approach, his delight in a fascinating, colourful subject and his deep, humane regard for a people 'who have, over the years, suffered incredible degradation and suppression'.
About the Author: Ivor Morrish was educated at Bristol, London and Oxford Universities. He is a graduate in philosophy and economics, in theology, and in classical Hebrew and Greek, and he holds the academic diploma of London University in philosophy, psychology and sociology. He has taught and lectured in a wide range of subjects, particularly in the fields of religious and social studies, and was a principal lecturer in education at La Sainte Union College of Higher Education. The founder editor of the Unwin Education Series, Ivor Morrish is himself the author of five books on various themes in the field of education, including one entitled The Background of Immigrant Children. His wide experience of travel in the USA, West Indies, Australia, New Guinea, Africa and Europe has helped to develop his interest in and knowledge of both comparative education and comparative religion. He is currently writing on topics in religious philosophy and mysticism.
