“. . . an up-to-date, comprehensive, and accessible single-volume text to introduce the Mau Mau movement and its part in Kenya’s nationalism and independence . . .” —International Journal of African Historical Studies

"Mau Mau and Kenya is a well written work which provides a clear and candid picture of the highly complex movements that were Mau Mau." —African History

Mau Mau and Kenya traces a unique peasant revolt against British colonialism. Was Mau Mau a national effort or an ethnic outburst? What were its political aims? Maloba describes the participants and their differing ideologies; relationships between the revolt and the conventional party politics of the Kenya African Union; and the impact of Mau Mau on decolonization in Kenya.
