Description

Ideas Matter – Journey into the Mind of a Veteran Journalist represents a compilation of Ian Boyne’s academic reflections on the politics, history and socio-economic issues confronting Jamaica in relation to local and international actors. His widely read and referenced InFocus column published in the Sunday Gleaner for over a decade as of 2013, is presented here in sections which serve up a potpourri of articles ranging from international politics and profiles of well-known and celebrated Jamaican and international personalities to religion and philosophy. Additionally, his well-debated and at times controversial stance on Jamaican popular culture, specifically, Dancehall, has led to a pleasingly eclectic following. This volume is welcomed especially at a time when the level of public academic discourse, questioning and reflecting on the importance of ideas which have and continue to shape our politics and society, is very relevant and necessary.
