Oxford University Press

British rule was the particular forcing house in which East Africa faced its trial by modernization, a process by which state power and capitalism have transformed societies the world over. Colonialism's founding alliances of the 1890s had met contrasting fates by the time of independence in the 1960s. A discussion on the founding alliances is given. It also describes the war, depression, and community in East Africa. It then addresses the war, prosperity, and nationalism in East Africa.

Keywords:   East Africa, British rule, colonialism, founding alliances, war, depression, community, prosperity, nationalism
