Ndeda, A.J. Mildred (2003) Nationalist Historiography in Kenya : A Look at the Changing Disposition of B.A. Ogotís Works Since 1961. Codesria 30th anniversary conference : 1-31.

In this paper we analyse the post independence production of history by a nationalistscholar whose life has spanned the entire period from Kenyas independence to date. This is an effort to analyse some of his past and current dispositions by looking at a number of the scholarly books and articles he has produced overtime. His latest book is quite significant in this analysis establishing whether he has maintained the academic fervor and disposition that went through stiff challenges in the 1970s and 1980ís. This paper tackles this in four subsections: First, it analyses his "Footprints on the Sands of Time" and his reflections on the trends of African historiography; It also analyses his essays that reconstruct various historical processes from pre-colonial state formation to the evolution of the colonial administration in Kenya and the organisation, composition and impact of the Mau Mau; And finally it analyses his commentaries on the contemporary issues and events including the nature and dynamics of African politics, leadership, identities, culture, development, universities and globalization
