Jamaica is known widely for its beautiful beaches and the reggae music scene. Culture and Customs of Jamaica richly surveys the fuller wealth of the Caribbean nation: its people, history, religion, education, language, social customs, media and cinema, literature, music, and performing and visual arts. Unique to this volume are presentations on Jamaican Creole and the education system, which have never before been found in a book aimed at a general audience. Students and other interested readers will find this volume indispensable for the detailed insight on the makings of modern Jamaica."--Jacket." ;
