Overstanding Rastafari


'Overstanding Rastarfari', the latest book by Dub Poet Yasus Afari, is without doubt an authentic compilation and in dept look at the Rastafarian movement. Unlike other authors, Yasus Afari took the time and care in expounding on the ever evolving and often misunderstood philosophy and ideals of Rastafari. Chock full with data relating to important dates and landmarks significant to the the movement, this makes the book a must for students, theologians and enthusiasts and everyone in general.
Gleaner columnist and talk show host, Ian Boyne in his introduction stated, "Yasus has offered us in this volume a most comprehensive compendium of Rastafarian history, culture and belief. Usually, the people who write about Rastafari are not Rastafarian".
Professor Barry Chevannes, (Professor Emeritus of Social Anthropology, University of the West Indies) and who is overly qualified to speak on the subject of Rastafari, stated in the foreword, "Yasus Afari's insightful, ecumenical approach to religious thought puts Rastafari on the same level as that of other world religion. From his fluent and graceful prose-after all, one is reminded that he is also a poet, the reader is able to achieve greater understanding of the universal appeal of this former cult of fishermen and coal burners".
Dr. Clinton Hutton (Lecturer in Political Studies, the University of The West Indies) in his review, wrote "Overstanding Rastafari is the articulate expression of aspects of the experience, livity and meaning of Rastafari as an open-ended root searching, identity constructing redemptive and epistemic mode of free sovereign human, written by Yasus Afari. And who better, at this time to extend the narrative on Rastafari than one of its own voices, the notable Yasus Afari.

I've been surfing on-line more than three hours these days, but I never discovered any attention-grabbing article like yours. It's pretty value sufficient for me.
In my opinion, if all web owners and bloggers made excellent content
as you probably did, the web will probably be much more helpful than ever
before.
