Second impression of a fascinating work on a region of Africa in transition. This is a labour of love by the former Commissioner for the East Africa Protectorate, a man who descibes his time there as "the happiest and most interesting years of my life", but who departed under a cloud, owing to a financial scandal that he touches upon here.
