Mau Mau & Nationhood : Arms, Authority and Narration

£9.99

Product description

Published in 2003 by James Currey Ltd.
Introduction written by the editors; John Lonsdale, Fellow at Trinity College, Cambridge; and E.S. Atieno Odhiambo, Professor of History at Rice University, Texas. Includes b&w ordinance maps throughout the book, page of Terms & Abbreviations to aid the reader, and extensive notes on the contributors. Multiple pages of bibliographies and notes included after each essay, and a select bibliography and extensive index found at the back of the book.

More than fifty years after the declaration of the state of emergency the significance of Mau Mau is still debated. This collection of essays combines retrospective overviews with research to achieve a multi-layered analysis of this topic. According to Professor Terence Ranger, Emeritus Rhodes Professor of Race Relations, University of Oxford: 'In some ways the historiography of Mau Mau is a supreme example of Race Relations. University of 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 that was once thought incapable of rational analysis.'

In very good condition, almost as new. Very first page is glued for about 1cm along the hinge to the front cover and the glue of the binding is visible however, the page is intact and not at all likely to fall out. Very slight shelf wear to the bottom of the book. Tight/unread binding and clean pages.
