Book Description Heinemann, 1982. Hardcover / Hardback. Book Condition: Very Good. Dust Jacket Condition: Very Good. First edition. Hardback. Tom Mboya was only 38yrs old when he was assassinated in a Nairobi street in 1969. Yet he had been a national and international celebrity for the best part of 15yrs. Many had seen him as the most gifted and dynamic political leader Africa had ever produced. Certainly he was one of the most controversial. This book traces Mboya's remarkable career from its beginnings in Kenyan trade unionism in the Mau Mau era to its conclusion near the summit of power in Kenyatta's state. At one level the book is a case-study in the political arts Mboya knew and practised so well. At other levels it explores Mboya's major contributions to the Kenyan independence movement, to pan-Africanism and to the fashioning of the post-colonial order in Kenya. The author argues that the conventional picture of Mboya's career as 'an unfortunate rightward progression from populist to comprador' had been overdone. This biography makes an important addition to the literature on Kenya's turbulent political history of the 1950s and 1960s and will be of special interest to students of Kenyan history and politics. It is also intended for readers of political biography and those with a general interest in African affairs. With Appendix and Index. 308pp. 8vo. h/back. From the library of true crime writer, Wilfred Gregg, with his personal b/plate. With Small rubber to tp. saying 'Redistributed Material' o/w Vg+ in Vg+ protected pcdw. which has small number to tail of sp. and is 'fixed' by 'blurb' to pds. Bookseller Inventory # 16011
