A thesis on the political history of the NFD Somalis written by a Somali academic from that region. The thesis gives an insightful look into the history of the often neglected region (economically by Kenya and historically by Somalis), the political structure before the arrival of the British, the colonial period, and the independence struggle thereafter. The thesis endsby examining how the Kenyatta administration suppressed the NFD independence struggle and the brutal policies employed. It also touches upon how the leaders of the movement were forced to give up their struggle after Somalia withdrew her support.
Most people don't know a thing or two about the NFD, so it's very rare to come across such an invaluable historical source.
