About this product
- DescriptionIn this book we are given a unique view of East Africa of the 1950s; not the stereotyped picture of wildlife safaris and leaping Masai, but the emerging independence struggle of a new African nation from the viewpoint of a white police office, in an exceptionally detailed, thoroughly readable, first-hand account of a rare period of recent history.
- Author BiographyRonald Norcott Callander was born in the Mallee region of Victoria, Australia, in 1933.
