Details the most famous aspects of Jamaica, the music and its culture, as well as the Island's history, including the slave trade operated by Britain.

Articles of faith : the collected Tablet journalism of Graham Greene by Graham Greene( Book )
10 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 321 libraries worldwide
When Graham Greene died in 1991, at the age of 86, his reputation as a "Catholic" writer was assured. His books reflected an awareness of sin and confronted political and religious themes with a somber eye. From 1936 to 1987, the British Catholic journal The Tablet provided Greene with a forum for his works-in-progress and sometimes unorthodox religious views. For the first time his Tablet contributions are collected in one volume; much of the material has remained forgotten for half a century. For the first time, too, Greene's many book reviews for The Tablet are brought together. His column for the newspaper's "Fiction Chronicle" praised the anti-Fascist Italian novelist Ignazio Silone and even a science fiction by the Czech author Karel Capek
