All but the most dogmatic of “students” of Kenya’s recent history are going to revise their views to a certain extent. They are going to do so partly because the assessment of ‘Mau Mau’ they had until recently was a little too “official.” But they are going to do so also because, all around them, the ostensible ends for which ‘Mau Mau’ fought are increasingly regarded as historically more enduring than the means to which they resorted in pursuing them.
