Summary
This book applies an interdisciplinary approach to evaluate the journey that Kenya has traveled as a nation since the end of colonialism on December 12, 1963. The book demonstrates that Kenya's postcolonial experience is marked with moments of tremendous feats amidst economic and political challenges that have on occasion strained the national fabric. While Kenya has distinguished itself as a commerce and industry hub in East Africa, the country is confronted with many challenges including job scarcity, ethnic differences nurtured by the political class, and widespread corruption
