Modern Kenya is a fascinating volume of essays that provide a unique perspective on some of the current issues facing this African nation. Written by Colorado professors and teachers who completed a Fulbright study program in Kenya, the fifteen essays in this volume are organized around three themes that reflect present-day concerns and challenges facing this African nation. These include issues related to politics, economics, and the environment; issues related to literature, drama, and art; and issues related to daily living. Each chapter begins with a quote from the participants concerning their experience, adding personal insight to otherwise very academic material. The chapters also include a literature review as well as a comprehensive look at a particular issue as it is reflected amongst Kenya's diverse cultural groups. Where appropriate, the chapters include case studies, maps, tables, and photographs to further illustrate the major ideas presented. Discussion questions, activities, additional resources, references, and indexes complete this volume. Interdisciplinary in its approach, this book will serve as an important resource in many academic subject areas, including African studies, comparative politics, sociology, and anthropology.
