Chapter Summary

This section contains a note on authors that occur in this book titled One Zambia, Many Histories: towards a history of post-colonial Zambia. One of the great virtues of this book is that it shies away from the narrative of postindependence Zambian history which United National Independence Party (UNIP) under Kaunda attempted to impose on the country. Until the re-introduction of multi-party democracy in the 1990s, an attempt was made to snaffle all forms of dissent, which entailed inter alia that movements of opposition were not only repressed but also ignored in the dominant discourse. One major feature of this book, one that the author totally, endorses, is that movements of opposition, and dissident individuals, are brought back into the story.

Keywords: Kaunda; United National Independence Party (UNIP); Zambian history
