MEDIA REVIEWS

"This is a fast-moving, readable account - stunningly well-researched in a wide range of archives on three continents - of hitherto little-known connections between the United States in general, and African-Americans in particular, with the history of the colonization and then liberation of Kenya." - John Lonsdale, Fellow of Trinity College and Emeritus University Professor of Modern African History, University of Cambridge

"In this detailed but fascinating account of the steady contact between the Kenya colony (later, nation) and the US, Horne demonstrates a closer relationship between the two governments than that of which most Americans are aware...Highly recommended." - W. Arens, CHOICE

'In this book, Gerald Horne offers a compelling transnational history of the intertwined struggles of African Americans for civil rights and of Kenyans for independence from British colonial rule. Based on extensive research in archival and print sources, it is impossible to capture in a short review the rich narrative Horne offers.' - American Historical Review

'As a preeminent scholar of African American history and politics, Gerald Horne has tirelessly crafted an impressively prolific body of work. By illuminating the historical and ideological forces that brought Kenya and the United States together, Mau Mau in Harlem? is another example of his laudable scholarly output. Horne's book will be an indispensible resource on this subject for years to come.' - The Journal of American History
