Comforts of Home: Prostitution in Colonial Nairobi


This history is . . . the first fully-fleshed story of African Nairobi in all of its complexity which foregrounds African experiences. Given the overwhelming white dominance in the written sources, it is a remarkable achievement. -Claire Robertson, International Journal of African Historical Studies “White’s book . . . takes a unique approach to a largely unexplored aspect of African History. It enhances our understanding of African social history, political economy, and gender studies. It is a book that deserves to be widely read”. -Elizabeth Schmidt, American Historical Review
