"Dr Kanogo has followed the fortunes of these squatters ...It is an amazing story. A t first, when white settlement was in its infancy, the squatters lived in a "heaven". They prospered greatly by utilizing the vast and virgin lands which the Europeans could not at first put underproduction. This "heaven" lasted only until around 1923. Then the white settlers began to assert themselves, by demanding more labour hours from the squatters.

By using the colonial state, they initiated laws to restrict squatter cultivation and animal husbandry and, by the early 1940s, the vast quantity of the squatter livestock had been got rid of. The squatters became poorer and poorer, disillusioned and angry. 'Dr Kanogo proceeds to narrate the story of squatter involvement in the Mau Mau movement - in particular female participation - the first time a Kenyan historian has actually done field work on Mau Mau instead of simply mouthing propaganda."

William R. Ochieng, Professor and Chairman of History Department, Kenyatta University.
