Steven Waldman provides a balanced though opinionated analysis of this important, complex, and emotion-laden subject.

    "Church, State and Society in Kenya draws on a rich variety of sources not previously accessed or published - together with interviews with both Church officials and ordinary Kenyans - to demonstrate the crucial role played by the Anglican Church in shaping emerging civil society and in developing alternative politics, as it moved from ambiguous support for the State in the s to a position. The story is essential to the continuing debate over how we define the role of religion and political power in modern American life. Author Bio John M. Barry is the author of four previous books, including the highly acclaimed and award-winning Rising Tide: The Great Mississippi Flood of and How It Changed America.
