Swahili Muslim Publics and Postcolonial Experience - Book Presentation by Kai Kresse
Swahili Muslim Publics and Postcolonial Experience is an exploration of the ideas and public discussions that have shaped and defined the experience of Kenyan coastal Muslims. Focusing on Kenyan postcolonial history, Kai Kresse isolates the ideas that coastal Muslims have used to separate themselves from their “upcountry Christian” countrymen. Kresse looks back to key moments and key texts – pamphlets, newspapers, lectures, speeches, radio discussions – as a way to map out the postcolonial experience and how it is negotiated in the coastal Muslim community.
