Is Bob Marley the only third world superstar? How did he achieve this unique status? In this captivating new study of one of the most influential musicians of the twentieth century, Jason Toynbee sheds new light on issues such as Marley’s contribution as a musician and public intellectual, how he was granted access to the global media system, and what his music means in cultural and political terms. Tracing Marley’s life and work from Jamaica to the world stage, Toynbee suggests that we need to understand Marley first and foremost as a ‘social author’. Trained in the co-operative yet also highly competitive musical laboratory of downtown Kingston, Marley went on to translate reggae into a successful international style. His crowning achievement was to mix postcolonial anger and hope with Jamaican textures and beats to produce the first world music. However the period since his death has been marked by brutal and intensifying inequality in the capitalist world system. There is an urgent need, then, to reconsider the nature of his legacy. Toynbee does this in the concluding chapters, weighing Marley’s impact as advocate of human emancipation against his marginalisation as a ‘Natural Mystic’ and pretext for disengagement from radical politics.

With a Bible and guitar, Bob Marley set out to conquer the world of popular music. Rising from humble origins to international stardom, he worked tirelessly to spread a dual message of resistance and redemption--a message inspired by his reading of scripture. Marley's constant reliance on the Bible throughout the stages of his artistic and spiritual paths is an integral part of his story that has not been sufficiently told--until now. This is the first book written on Bob Marley as biblical interpreter. It answers the question, What light does biblical scholarship shed on Marley's interpretation, and what can Marley teach biblical scholars? Focusing on the parts of the Bible that Marley quotes most often in his lyrics, MacNeil provides a close analysis of Marley's interpretation. For students of Marley, this affords a deeper appreciation and understanding of his thought and his art. For students of scripture, it demonstrates the nature of Marley's unique contribution to the field of biblical interpretation, which can be appreciated as an excellent example of what R. S. Sugirtharajah calls vernacular interpretation of scripture.

The quintessential folk poet of the Third World, Bob Marley influenced generations of musicians and writers. He was a performer who held true to his religious and cultural heritage, who rallied against injustice, and who became an internationally revered musical icon. Renowned poet and scholar Kwame Dawes analyses in detail his verses and lyrics, matching them against the social and political climate of the time and asking of them what it meant to be a black, Jamaican man thrust into the limelight of western society; how change can be affected through music; and how political and ethical truths can be woven into song. His lyrics are poignant, powerful and poetic and this book showcases his written word. Updated to include an interactive timeline of his life, formed with videos and imagery, as well as integrated Spotify playlists, this is the perfect companion to Bob Marley’s recordings.

This full-blooded story of The Wailers puts the life, music and death of the legendary Bob Marley into a razor-sharp new perspective. The Wailers played with Marley on all of the hit singles and albums that made him a legend, yet their story since his death is a little-known saga of betrayal, greed and murder that is told here in its entirety for the first time. Written in collaboration with Aston 'Family Man' Barrett and other surviving band members, the book explores Marley's colourful journey from downtown Kingston onto the world stage. It covers the assassination attempt on Marley's life, his exile in London, the kidnapping and decapitation of the Barretts' father, and the death by gunfire of both Peter Tosh and drummer Carlton Barrett. Bitter acrimony followed Marley's own death from cancer as the iconic singer's legacy was parlayed into a multi-million dollar industry.

Bob Marley blazed a trail for reggae from 1962, when he cut his first single as an inexperienced teenager, to 1980, when he played the last of his concerts. The decades after his death he remains the music’s undisputed superstar, revered and recognized the world over. Marley’s career not only introduced Jamaican music to the world, it saw the singer overcome a difficult childhood to make his mark. His lyrics, often delivered in thick Jamaican patois, nevertheless spoke eloquently of ‘One Love’, urging his listeners to “Stand up for your rights” and forging musical links with the punk movement. Marley, born in 1945, worked with Bunny Livingston and Peter “Tosh” McIntosh as the Wailers (initially Wailin’ Wailers) in the mid Sixties. Early songs bore the unmistakable American soul influence of James Brown and Sam & Dave, but as the Wailers moved on from vocal group to fully-fledged band so his writing grew in maturity. He traveled to Europe with Johnny Nash, for whom he wrote the hit ‘Stir It Up’, and aimed his music at European ears. Eric Clapton’s 1974 version of ‘I Shot The Sheriff’ topped the US chart, raising Marley’s profile in that country. The long-awaited British chart breakthrough came with the single ‘No Woman, No Cry’, from the acclaimed Live! album, and all seemed set for further success until illness set in. Fellow musical giant Stevie Wonder paid musical tribute to him with his reggae fied ‘Master Blaster (Jammin’)’, and sales of albums he made with backing group the Wailers continue to notch up in millions. The life and legacy of Bob Marley has been celebrated by museums, exhibitions, and all-star concerts, and the music he made continues to speak to new generations. This book tells his story in words and pictures, adding a historical perspective to a music that still speaks to us today.
