5.0 out of 5 stars A warning for the future, 18 Feb. 2008
Endearing and distressing, this book tells the story of the dying nomads of Kenya and Tanzania, pushed off their savannahs by drought and greed. Monbiot echoes Chatwin's skilled narratives of nomads and warns the reader of the negative outlook for the people who retain probably the most genuine existence of all mankind. A must-read.

Absolute Power: Ouko Murder Mystery
Absolute Power: Ouko Murder Mystery
by Jonah Anguka
Edition: Paperback

4.0 out of 5 stars Inciteful and engaging, 15 Feb. 2006
Anguka's poignant and politically charged account of the death of one of the men to dramatically change Kenya's political landscape provides a scathing account of the cover up of the murder at a governmental level and leaves no question as to who the real culprits are considered to be. In a climate of continuing cover-ups in Kenya, this book is a refreshing anomaly; distinctly honest and continuously engaging, this account is a must for those interested in the historical and indeed current political events in Kenya.
