Riassunto: This text traces the life and career of one of Africa's longest serving and most controversial leaders, Daniel arap Moi, President of Kenya. Andrew Morton seeks to challenge assumptions about a man routinely written off as a dictator.
From Library Journal:
In the first authorized biography of President Daniel arap Moi of Kenya, British journalist Morton (Diana: Her True Story in Her Own Words, S. & S., 1997) provides insights into the enigmatic character and political philosophy of one of Africa's longest-serving and most controversial leaders. The book is a conscious attempt to probe Moi's background and besmirched international reputation and present a more objective picture of the man and his times, from Kenya's colonial era to the struggle for independence. Morton asserts compellingly that "pragmatic nationalism, combined with his Christian morality and the tribal culture surrounding the chief, are key elements in understanding Moi as a person and also as a politician." His account is enhanced by excellent photographs. A remarkably rich and compelling read, particularly for students and scholars of African politics, history, and cultural studies.
