Of the ethnic gangs that rule America’s inner cities, none has had the impact of the Jamaican posses. Spawned in the ghettos of Kingston as mercenary street-fighters for the island’s politicians, the posses began migrating to the United States in the early 1980s, just in time to catch and ride the crack wave as it engulfed the country. Feared and honored for being “harder than the rest,” they would lay claim to their new American territory with outlaw bravura, and the raw dancehall music born of their world would define “gangsta” culture for a generation of angry sufferers in Jamaica, American, and England. Laurie Gunst spent a decade moving with the possemen, and Born Fi’ Dead is her unique account of this netherworld, the first to bring to life Jamaica’s international gangs.

Laurie Gunst earned her doctorate in history at Harvard. This book gave a different perspective of life in Jamaica during the year late 60's - 70's. I am sure it is from the perspective of the story tellers and as always a coin has 2 sides. Story was well written and captivating.

book by Laurie Gunst. Of the ethnic gangs that rule America’s inner cities, none has had the impact of the Jamaican posses. It clearly showed why so many Jamaicans migrated to get away from the somewhat savage-like environment that the politicians created for the less-educated lower income Kingston residents. I enjoyed reading a book full of harsh realities. However we will have some Jamaicans up in arms at the hidden truths of our gun crazy society.

Excellent look into the world of jamaican drug posses and how they originated. It also tells the history of Jamaica in the process.

This is a well written documentary.

This book provided me with the insight and knowledge about events and activities that transpired in Jamaica during the seventies and eighties. I was finally able to connect the elusive dots that were ever so present during that time in Jamaica. The writer provided me with a poignant and comprehensive view of all the incidents in Jamaica and abroad. Great Read!
adventure time
Great artwork but storylines are sometimes predictable and unrealistic. Great artwork! Now if I can only find Volume 4 without having to pay a fortune to the "scalpers" on Amazon and Ebay.

This book gave a different perspective of life in Jamaica during the year late 60's - 70's. I am sure it is from the perspective of the story tellers and as always a coin has 2 sides. Story was well written and captivating. I would love to hear or read the follow up the stories. Has the country we love and is so much a part of us changed or just the same.

This is a dark, violent world I knew nothing of it was a great journey into a lush land of splendor and great need that is covered up my PR ads. Great book if you wish to learn of the underbelly of Jamaica.
