Britain and Kenya’s Constitutions, 1950–1960 by Robert Maxon
This is the first study of constitution making during a critical decade of British rule in Kenya to be based on a thorough examination of archival sources, including secret intelligence reports and British cabinet records. These allow for a more complete appreciation of the forces that produced the specific constitutional dispensations.
