Asians in East Africa
This book is an introduction in the history of South Asians in East Africa on the basis of photographs and images. History and facts are used in this book as a background to individual live stories and rare images and portraits of the Asian community in Africa. This unique collection of old postcards, paper money -like Indian rupees in German notes- family pictures and cabinet card pictures present a history which cannot be told in words. The history of South Asians is part of a larger project employed bij dr. G. Oonk, who is associate professor in the department of Non-Western history at the Erasmus University Rotterdam, Netherlands. He conducted extensive fieldwork in Kenya and Tanganyika during 2001-2003.
