  • Recent scholarly works and a lawsuit in Britain pertaining to the Mau Mau rebellion suggest a broad audience for work on colonial Kenya
  • There is a steady stream of successful popular works on Kenya's white settlers. The present book tackles the subject, but from a different perspective
  • The work contributes to the burgeoning literature on 'whiteness studies,' and expands the literature beyond its focus on the US and Europe
