Abstract:

'Harry Thuku's narrative of his life is probably the only account there will be of a major political figure from the very earliest period of Kenya's modern politics. With his memory unimpaired at the age of 75, he has produced a fascinating record of his own childhood and employment in the first years of this century, and has proceeded to bring to the period just after the Great War a wealth of detail on the personalities and movements in that first flowering of Kenyan protest. The complex inter-relationships of Indians, missionaries, settlers and government with African associations are worked out carefully, and much new light is thrown in the process on the political life of Nairobi's first African townsmen.' --
