Summary:
Based on over 250 psychiatric case files, this book traces the lives of Kenya's 'white insane' to focus not on the 'great white hunters' and heroic pioneer farmers but on those Europeans who did not manage to emulate the colonial ideal. In doing so, the book raises important new questions around deviance, transgression and social control.
