The book focuses on Kenya's journey towards achieving democratic ideals. These entail politics anchored in the ethos of accountability, adherence to the rule of law and the right of citizens to participate in periodic credible elections. The scope of the book extends from the colonial period to the 2007-2008 post-election violence triggered by the controversial declaration of Mwai Kibaki's reelection. Though the book covers African politics in general, Kenya provides the lens through which these issues are discussed.
