I consider this book as exceptionally good both for the quality of the information it carries and the soundness of the analysis. It is a book which any body would read with enthusiasm. It is a must for those interested seriously in the region under study […] In this book, Mafeje provides a new understanding of the changes imposed by colonization on the organizational structures of the region as well as an interpretation of what he calls The petty-bourgeoisie of Independent Africa[…] and the aristocracy of the old regime.
