This analysis of the transformation of the political economy of colonial and post-colonial Kenya is followed by a theoretical discussion of its implications for such issues as the type of class analysis which is appropriate for the country, the role of the state in capital accumulation and class formation, and the possible relevance of Marxist value theory to the analysis of exploitation in Kenya.
