As a comprehensive global history of reggae and a reggae travelogue rolled into one, The Reggae Nation takes readers on an extraordinary and unique journey through time and space. From the bottom of the Grand Canyon to the frozen heights of the Himalayas in Nepal, and numerous places in between on all continents, this comprehensive volume takes readers to the roots and along the routes of reggae and Rastafari.

The Reggae Nation is published as a one-time limited edition of 500 hardcover copies in large size: 23,5 cm (9.25") x 30 cm (11,81") x 3,9 cm (1.54“). The book is hefty and weighs nearly 2.4 kg (5.3 lbs).

The Reggae Nation highlights the author’s commitment to reggae, desire to share his passion and knowledge, and intention to give something back to the music which has given the author so much. The book never was about money and turning a profit. That is why the project has a non-profit character and the proceeds of book sales (after covering the production costs) go to HELP Jamaica! e.V..
