Synopsis

This book focuses on one of Africa's major novelists, Ngugi wa Thiong'o, who depicts and analyzes many of the tensions associated with the colonization of East Africa by Europeans. Through his Christian education in Kenya, Ngugi became highly knowledgeable of both the Old and New Testament Scriptures and of inconsistencies between the political policies of foreign-controlled imperial administrations and their lip-service to Christian beliefs. Ngugi's grievances with the Western world in its dealings with East Africa focus on three major issues: cultural intrusion, political domination, and economic exploitation, and he vividly portrayed these issues in his novels.
