Brief Description
Detailed Description
Specifications

This volume re-centers perspectives on Kenyan coastal history and society, moving away from the Swahili peoples as central actors and foregrounding the contributions and interactions of other African peoples, particularly the Mijikenda, whose stories have received less emphasis.  It explores how these coastal peoples have shaped their identities in conjunction with and in relation to their neighbors, examining the social, economic, and political interactions between coastal residents in historical and contemporary contexts.  Contributors include American, British, and Kenyan scholars, among whom are a new generation of Mijikenda scholar-activists who are adding their voices to challenge the dominant historical script.
