This book provides graphic and scholarly perspectives of ethnic conflict in kenya where ethnocentrism has grown with time and where both ethnic and administrative units are coterminous. As the country's Rift Valley attracted in-migration since independence in 1963, it became the seedbed of a simmering ethnic strife that exploded in 1991-93, causing a flood of internally displaced people (IDP) and grinding agricultural activity and economic enterprise to a halt.
