From rear cover notes: "Thunder from the Mountains: Mau Mau Patriotic Songs reproduces for the first time in English the actual songs sung by the Mau Mau in the villages and forests of Kenya as they fought against the British in the great rising of the 1950s. Here they express in their own words the themes that dominated their struggle - the demand for land, the call to arms, the heroism of battle, the horrors of imprisonment, the treachery of the collaborator. This is 'people's history' at its most authentic - the hopes and perceptions of ordinary human beings as they struggle to take control of history and win their liberation."
