``Edgerton explains the racially superior attitudes and practices of Kenya's whites that provoked the Mau Mau intimidation. . . . Many of the rebels were ordinary people who did not commit brutal acts but fought as well for political freedom, economic opportunity and social justice,'' PW discovered in this ``skillful'' examination of the 1952-1956 Kikuyu rebellion against British settlers .
