HASH(0x8b891990) out of 5 stars Good read of history up to Independence 17 July 2003
By BookWoman - Published on
Format: Hardcover
This book was a good read - informative and absorbing, unlike so many dry books about Kenya's independence that are out there. Kyle was a journalist in Kenya at the time of Uhuru and he has a journalist's flair for writing. You get not just the facts but his spin on the personalities involved as well. My only disappointment was that the book ends immediately after independence, with only a brief postscript to describe any of the history following. Moi's presidency is not covered at all. Too bad he didn't write another book on Kenya's more recent history.
