Description

In this work, the author charts the story of the social and environmental challenges met in Kenya from the last century. In particular it recognises the leading role played by women in resisting the chiefs and colonial administration. It also addresses the debates of central and eastern Africa and the central struggle for land in Kenya between settler and African; and the use of environmentalism as a weapon by settles to legitimate occupation of the land.show more
