Brief Summary
Despite initial concern about bringing three young children to Kenya during the final days of the Mau Mau uprising, Dr Stephens formed a lasting attachment to Kenya and its people during his time here in the 1950s, and has been back many times since. His wife and children accompanied him on his assignments to both Kenya and Tanzania and share his love of East Africa. Dr Stephens currently lives in Massachusetts with his wife Dorothy.
… on engaging and insightful book about an important and ignored slice of history … Robert Stephens takes us to another American-sponsored airlift that brought a generation of future African leaders to our shores for higher education.
This effort profoundly altered the lives of these men and women, the development of East African nations, and the perception of America. At a time when the world struggled to understand the value of ‘soft’ as opposed to military power, this book offers a valuable historical model.
