Jamaica is known widely for its beautiful beaches and reggae music scene, but there is much more to this Caribbean country. Culture and Customs of Jamaica richly surveys the fuller wealth of the Caribbean nation, focusing on its people, history, religion, education, language, social customs, media and cinema, literature, music, and performing and visual arts. Jamaican Creole and the education system, which are not often discussed in volumes aimed at a general audience, are also examined in this volume. Students and other interested readers will find this volume indispensable for its detailed insight on the makings of modern Jamaica.
