Notes:
182 p., Explores the dialogue between two central institutions in African Caribbean life: the church and the dancehall. Beckford highlights how Dub – one of the central features of dancehall culture – can be mobilized as a framework for re-evaluating theology, taking apart doctrine and reconstructing it under the influence of a guiding theme.
