Global Reggae, edited by Carolyn Cooper (Canoe Press, 329 pp, ISBN 9789768125965)


This timely compendium explores


the myriad ways


reggae has impacted the world, teasing out the complex and often contradictory manner in which other cultures have engaged with the music. It is drawn from plenary lectures delivered at the Global Reggae Conference, held in Jamaica in 2008, which gathered many of the world’s leading authorities at the instigation of Professor Carolyn Cooper, who founded


the International Reggae Studies Centre in 1995 to accord the music its appropriate level of scholarly weight. Highlights include Erna Brodber’s exploration of reggae’s impact at home during the 1960s, Amon Saba Saakana on reggae in Britain, Samuel Fure Davis on Cuban reggae, and Teddy Isimat on French-Caribbean dancehall. There are also chapters examining reggae’s impact in Europe, Oceania, Japan, and Africa, making the book required reading.

Brian Lara: An Unauthorised Biography, by James Fuller (Signal Books, 208 pp, ISBN 9781908493620)


More years of research than you can shake a stick at, plus no mean allotment of devotion to its larger-than-life subject, make James Fuller’s unofficial Lara biography one for the record books. A mercurial figure of professional greatness and a personal life marked by both traditionalisms and complexities, Lara’s nuances both on and off the pitch are held up to generous, multi-


tiered scrutiny beneath Fuller’s lens. Tracing Lara’s Cantaro origins through a collection of tellingly generous interviews, the English journalist presents a moving, not-uncritical portrait of a man whose permanence in cricketing history has long been out of dispute. Far more than a statistic-checking performance sheet, Fuller’s offering fleshes out Lara in his glory, paying needful attention to the weight of such splendour.
