MEDIA REVIEWS

"This is a well conducted multidisciplinary project at the intersection of history, anthropology, cultural and literary studies, and sociology. Alam offers an ambitious re-examination of the Mau Mau revolt in colonial Kenya, focusing on land and freedom. He balances meticulous attention to the empirical basis of his exploration with the theoretical and methodological in a refreshing, comparative framework." - Mamadou Diouf, Professor of History and of African American and African Studies, University of Michigan "Of the recent studies on Kenya's Mau Mau uprising, Shamsul Alam's stands out. It frames the movement correctly for what it was - a bonafide revolution that shocked Britain out of her imperial arrogance. Modestly put, Alam's book is a powerful statement that: after all is said and done, Mau Mau will take its place in history as one of the world's greatest events which helped to bring the Empire down to its knees." - Mwangi Njagi, Adjunct Professor of Modern African History, State University of New York, Stony Brook
