Fifty years after the declaration of the state of emergency, Mau Mau still excites argument and controversy, not least in Kenya itself. "Mau Mau and Nationhood" is a collection of essays providing the most recent thinking on the uprising and its aftermath. The work of well-established scholars as well as of young researchers with fresh perspectives, " Mau Mau and Nationhood "achieves a multilayered analysis of a subject of enduring interest. According to Terence Ranger, Emeritus Rhodes Professor, Oxford, "In some ways the historiography of Mau Mau is a supreme example not only of ambiguity and complexity, but also of redemption of a topic once thought incapable of rational analysis."
