This page serves as a Booklist for resources that every RasTafari home and community should have.
These books provide intimate details of the life, struggles and times of Emperor Haile Sellassie I, Empress Menen as well as His family. They also document the history of the Rastafari Movement.

While most of RasTafari tradition to date is based on comparing His life and person to the Scriptures of Judeo-Christianity, it is important not to neglect His actual experiences and works in determining the phenomenal Character and Impact of this historical Ruler and Ethiopian figure.

This is by no means a definitive list as there are numerous titles which cover Ethiopia, Rastafari and the Monarchy.
