Reviews

"Had Julie MacArthur produced a volume containing simply the text of Kimathi's trial that achievement alone would have been worthy of high praise. To bring together the additional documents presented here - and garner the participation and resultant scholarship of these contributors - is an extraordinary accomplishment. Faculty might assign Dedan Kimathi on Trial in the undergraduate classroom, but perhaps most importantly, it will be read and fiercely argued over in Kenya."
"[This] publication accords Kenya and the world yet another moment of serious reflection and stock taking in revisiting one of Africa's most compelling moments in the history of resistance against colonialist and imperialist injustice." -- From the foreword by Micere Githae Mu go and Ngu gi wa Thiong'o
"The scholarly reflections brought together in this volume reveal the deep historical significance of figures like Kimathi, the moral lessons we can learn from the past, and the continuing relevance of the struggle for independence in Kenya today." -- From the introductory note by Chief Justice Willy Mutunga
"With the proceedings and exhibits of Kimathi's show trial produced in gripping detail, and essays showing why this trial mattered far beyond a Nyeri courtroom in 1956, MacArthur superbly situates Kimathi's fate amidst African resistance to crumbling empire." -- Huw Bennett, author of Fighting the Mau Mau: The British Army and Counter-Insurgency in the Kenya Emergency
