Katz, David. 2003. Solid Foundation: An Oral History of Reggae. London: Bloomsbury.

For Solid Foundation David Katz has interviewed over 100 reggae artists, from Jamaica, the UK and the US, going back to the earliest pioneers of reggae in the mid-1950s. He has taken over ten years to collect the interviews and it is an extraordinary feat. This is an exhaustive history charting the progression and development of the music, with all the controversies and feuds in between covered in detail, making it a very compelling read.
