This widely-acclaimed book on a troubled period of Kenyan history summarizes some of the more important Kikuyu customs, and a discussion of their break-down under the impact of European civilization. This discussion illustrates why and how the Mau Mau came into being and how the situation could be improved so that peace could once again come to Kenya.


This intensely illuminating book there is not one of the pages that is not charged with interest and relevance - Wilson Harris, The Spectator

Makes an important contribution towards the understanding of the problems that threaten Kenya - The Observer
