Bob Marley was the first, and possibly the only, superstar to emerge from the Third World. Although he lived a short life, only 36 years, Bob penned an enormous quantity of songs, pioneering a new reggae rhythm and sound that was distinctly Jamaican. Author David Moskowitz gives readers an inside look at the man behind the legend.

This in-depth analysis of the reggae superstar's poetry in lyric form delves into the songwriter's intellect and spirituality with scholarly precision usually more associated with Bob Dylan or John Lennon. Thought of as the folk poet of the developing world, Marley influenced generations of musicians and writers throughout the Western hemisphere. He was a performer who held true to his heritage, yet is still awarded the status of world rock star. Bob Marley: Lyrical Genius features interviews with key people and musicians who knew the man. It's the perfect companion to Bob Marley's recordings. Previously published by Sanctuary.

Is Bob Marley the only third world superstar? How did he achieve this unique status? In this captivating new study of one of the most influential musicians of the twentieth century, Jason Toynbee sheds new light on issues such as Marley's contribution as a musician and public intellectual, how he was granted access to the global media system, and what his music means in cultural and political terms. Tracing Marley's life and work from Jamaica to the world stage, Toynbee suggests that we need to understand Marley first and foremost as a 'social author'. Trained in the co-operative yet also highly competitive musical laboratory of downtown Kingston, Marley went on to translate reggae into a successful international style. His crowning achievement was to mix postcolonial anger and hope with Jamaican textures and beats to produce the first world music. However the period since his death has been marked by brutal and intensifying inequality in the capitalist world system. There is an urgent need, then, to reconsider the nature of his legacy. Toynbee does this in the concluding chapters, weighing Marley's impact as advocate of human emancipation against his marginalisation as a 'Natural Mystic' and pretext for disengagement from radical politics.

A rebel, a visionary, an uncompromising champion of human rights - Robert Nesta Marley rose from the slums of Kingston, Jamaica, to make reggae music and his own message of rebellion, self-determination, and the power of the individual a spiritual, and political force throughout the world. The Wailers recording sessions, concerts, and life at 56 Hope Road (Marley's residence) are all part of a sensitive, authoritative, and authentic look at the king of a musical movement that swept out of Jamaica and into Western and Third World Countries alike. Today the legend of Bob Marley continues to grow with legions of fans, many of whom weren't even born when Marley died. This "larger than life" figure continues to affect music, since so much of what is current leads back to roads he paved. The members of his band (among them Peter Tosh, Bunny Wailer, Aston "Family Man" Barrett) and his family (including Rita and Ziggy Marley) continue to dominate the reggae and pop music of today. The effect this music has had on the rest of the world, not only in reggae but in pop, ska, punk, world beat, dancehall, rap, hi hop, folk, and almost every genre of popular music imaginable cannot be measured.
