THE DON WITH A PEN

Biographical works received a severe beating when communism walked half of the earth like a colossus. It was claimed that propagandists had turned biographies into exercises for exorcising the ghosts of their rapacity, exploitation of the workers, brutality, debauchery, and chicanery. So as to earn its proper place, efforts that went into this biography ensured, on the most part, that it falls within the appropriate historical context. Drawing from my knowledge of the history as well as the literature informing this biography, care has been taken to ensure it has relevance for future scholarship, especially to disciplines like political science, literature, and history. So as to achieve this, an examination of documents together with oral texts with a bearing on the life of the subject was both necessary and inevitable. Sometimes, such information was drawn from the often subjective opinion of adversaries, rivals, subordinates, family, neighbours, as well as friends. The subject of the biography, Prof. William Robert Ochieng, is a scholar of international repute. In Kenya, he is one of the leading thinkers in matters of history.

Bronislaw Kasper Malinowski (1884-1942) was a Polish-born anthropologist. Known for his ethnographic work in Oceania in the early twentieth century, his consequent publications in England and Europe earned him repute as a leading developer of social anthropology. Originally published in 1929, this book is regarded as a significant anthropological work of the twentieth century. Based on Malinowski's studies of Melanesian society on the Trobriand Islands off New Guinea, it chronicles the social and economic practices and customs of a rapidly vanishing race. Featuring a new biography and high quality reproductions of the original plates, We are republishing this highly acclaimed text in a modern and affordable edition.
