Mau Mau & Nationhood : Arms Authority & Narration Hardback
Part of the Eastern African Studies series
Fifty years after the declaration of the state of emergency, Mau Mau still excites argument and controversy, not least in Kenya itself.
Mau Mau and Nationhood is a collection of essays providing the most recent thinking on the uprising and its aftermath.
The work of well-established scholars as well as of young researchers with fresh perspectives, Mau Mau and Nationhood achieves a multilayered analysis of a subject of enduring interest.
According to Terence Ranger, Emeritus Rhodes Professor, Oxford, "In some ways the historiography of Mau Mau is a supreme example not only of ambiguity and complexity, but also of redemption of a topic once thought incapable of rational analysis."
