Series: Princeton Legacy Library. Published by: Princeton University Press. The central highlands of Kenya are those elevated portions of East Africa which European colonists entered from the beginning of the twentieth century in an effort to make Kenya a white settlement area. This region is also the homeland of three African peoples-the Kamba, Kikuyu, and Maasai. This work is a study of the ways in which these three societies were colonized, the impact this colonization had upon their traditional ways of life, and the different patterns of change and continuity that marked their experiences roughly from 1900 to 1939.

This book takes an entirely new approach to the evolution of cities and of societies in premodern periods. Refining the theory advanced in his earlier study of China and Japan, Gilbert Rozman examines the development of Russia over several centuries with emphasis on the period immediately preceding the Industrial Revolution. He makes possible comparison of urbanization in five countries (including England and France as well as Russia) and develops a systematic framework for analyzing cities of varying size.
Treatment of Russia includes a history of urban development prior to 1750, an examination of late eighteenth-century social structure as it related to cities, and a study of regional variations in urbanization. The author presents a wealth of information until now unavailable in English. Since this information is provided in a format similar to that used in the earlier book, data on Russia can readily be placed in broad perspective. Comparisons with the other countries show that Russia's development was less slow than has been supposed.
Separate sections on England and France supply estimates of the number of settlements at each level of their urban hierarchies.
