This review is from: Kenya: A Country in the Making 1880-1940 (Hardcover)
This excellent book certainly defines and illustrates the history and culture of Kenya during the period 1880-1940. The 720 pictures,restored and enhanced where necessary,are divided into decades and cover a) the beauty and allure of life b)ceremonies and traditional dress,c)the construction of the Uganda railway,d)development of trade e)the hardships of WW1 and f)the pioneering spirit.
There is a short text for each decade but what reall makes the book are the picrures.The author is to be congratulated in producing such a magnificent historical record.
NB.There is an error in the table of contents (page vii) where 1889 should read 1899(see page 3).
