Protests, Petitions and Persuasion

Documents from Malawi

edited by David S Bone

This is an exciting, comprehensive compilation of letters, petitions, songs, poems, cartoons and a fatwa composed by Malawi’s foremost martyrs and struggle heroes. The documents lay bare the chequered march of Malawi’s political and social history and give a glimpse into the minds of some of Malawi’s most notable figures and the challenges they faced in their time as they fought for change. They are accompanied by rich commentaries by respected authors on Malawian political history: Klaus Fiedler, John Lwanda, Isabel Phiri, and Kenneth Ross.
