Reviews

'These essays reflect the interplay of autobiography and academic scholarship. Future authors ... will have to wrestle with the definitions of causes, categories, chronologies and consequences distilled in Anthony Low's pages.' Andrew Porter, The Times Literary Supplement 'His extensive scholarly experience of East Africa ... and of India, has conferred upon Low a rich understanding of national, sub-national and local politics in these regions. To his grassroot view of events and processes he adds a commanding metropolitan perception.' Ravinder Kumar, The Book Review (India) 'He ... displays ... astute analysis and the mastery of a wide range of sources.' Ian Talbot, Journal of Imperial and Commonwealth History
