PANKHURST, Richard K.P. Kenya: The History of two Nations … with a Foreword by Frida Laski. London, Independent Publishing Co., [1954].

8vo. Original cloth with dust-wrapper, not price-clipped; pp. 122, sketch map; wrapper with a few repaired tears, otherwise near-fine.
Scarce first edition, signed presentation copy with long inscription, dated 1954 on front fly-leaf. The son of the former suffragist Sylvia Pankhurst and the Italian Anarchist and printer Silvio Corio here writes a book on Kenya, Indian influence, the Mau Mau movement and African nationalism in East Africa. The presentation inscription is to Basil Taylor, probably the broadcaster and RCA director. 'In the hope that this brief interpretation of events in East Africa may persuade him that injustice can be found outside the confines of East Germany'.
