Reseña del editor:

Biographical works received a severe beating when communism walked half of the earth like a colossus. It was claimed that propagandists had turned biographies into exercises for exorcising the ghosts of their rapacity, exploitation of the workers, brutality, debauchery, and chicanery. So as to earn its proper place, efforts that went into this biography ensured, on the most part, that it falls within the appropriate historical context. Drawing from my knowledge of the history as well as the literature informing this biography, care has been taken to ensure it has relevance for future scholarship; especially to disciplines like political science, literature, and history. So as to achieve this, an examination of documents together with oral texts with a bearing on the life of the subject was both necessary and inevitable. Sometimes, such information was drawn from the often subjective opinion of adversaries, rivals, subordinates, family, neighbours, as well as friends. The subject of the biography, Prof. William Robert Ochieng, is a scholar of international repute. In Kenya, he is one of the leading thinkers in matters of history.
