Book Launch – Cartography and The Political Imagination: Mapping Community In Colonial Kenya, Jul. 28 2017 @ BIEA

Date: July 28, 2017
Venue: BIEA Laikipia Road, Kileleshwa
Time: 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.

“Cartography and political imagination breaks new ground in Kenyan historiography. this detailed study argues that Luhyia ethnic architects used cartography to create a demographically indusive, politically prulalistic and progressive cosmopolitan community. it is refreshing to read a book on Kenya that does not focus on Mau Mau or the Kikuyu. MacArthur’s exemplary study of a regional history will be indespensable to scholars of ethnogenesis and cartography in Africa and elsewhere.”
