by David Lovatt Smith. My Enemy : My Friend takes us at first-hand to the heart of the controversy. This imperial emergency of not so long ago was one of those 'savage wars of peace' that continue to divide opinion in our own day. Those who recall the Mau Mau as bestial killers will have their memories amply confirmed. Lovatt Smith knows how to sustain both suspense and, at the moment of crisis, sheer horror. Those who believe, to the contrary, that brutal British retribution rather than African barbarism provoked a Mau Mau war of resistance will also nod their heads. Trinity College, University of Cambridge.
The earliest known expression of this concept is found in a Sanskrit treatise on statecraft, the Arthashastra, which dates to around the 4th century BC, while the first recorded use of the current English version came in 1884.
