Black Poachers, White Hunters · A Social History of Hunting in Colonial Kenya
By Edward I. Steinhart

Black Poachers, White Hunters traces the history of hunting in Kenya in the colonial era, describing the British attempt to impose the practices and values of nineteenth-century European aristocratic hunts followed, ultimately, by claims over African wildlife by conservationists.

“This exciting, accessible, and challenging book is a timely addition to the literature.... Steinhart uses fascinating oral testimony to reconstruct African hunting histories and traditions in Kenya's eastern region...."
