The Social Context of the Mau Mau Movement in Kenya (1952-1960) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Social Context of the Mau Mau Movement in Kenya (1952-1960) explores the social climate that united different clans and ethnic groups and sustained the Mau Mau Movement. Through analysis of Social Movement literature, historical accounts, and a first-hand narrative from Muigai Kanyua, a fighter in the Mau Mau forest for at least three years, this new work explores a relatively unexamined aspect of the Mau Mau movement.

Book News Annotation:

During the 1950s, the Mau Mau movement in Kenya unified people of different clans and ethnic groups in the struggle to be free of British colonial rule. This volume combines archival research by Macharia (sociology, American U.) with a first hand narrative by Kanyua (a member of the Muranga Mau Mau fighters for nearly three years) in order to situate the movement within its social context. The legacy of the Mau Mau in Kenya's subsequent political and economic development is also assessed.
