This book consists of an introduction by Joanna Lewis (26 pages) and some 180 pages by Tom Askwith, on the last half of his career in Kenya, from 1945 to about 1960. He became Municipal Native Affairs Officer for Nairobi in 1945, and Commissioner for Community Development in 1949. He was also, until 1951, Principal of the Jeanes School. Normal work was then drastically cut as the focus shifted to the rehabilitation of people involved in Mau Mau activities. He opposed the later introduction of compulsory, rather than voluntary, labour in the camps. The Hola incident proved him right.
