This work describes changes in the Jamaican and Caribbean reggae culture by examining the relationship between mass communication and the cultural domination of African, Caribbean, and other less powerful peoples that has been based primarily on importation/exportation theoretical framework of cultural domination. The author argues this importation/ exportation framework does not acknowledge the role of African, Caribbean, and other current less powerful peoples as originators in what history indicates is the millennia-old process of domination by the more powerful.
