Facing Mount Kenya

 
Besides its continuing value for an understanding of the problems of Kenya, Facing Mount Kenya has an enduring place in the literature of social... anthropology. As Professor Malinowski wrote in his introduction, it 'is a really competent and instructive contribution to African ethnography by a scholar of pure African parentage...As a first-hand account of a representative African culture, as an invaluable document in the principles underlying culture-contact and change; last, but not least, as a personal statement of the new outlook of a progressive African, this book will rank as a pioneering achievement of outstanding merit'.
