This interdisciplinary volume provides a comprehensive and rich analysis of the century-long socio-ecological transformation of Lake Naivasha, Kenya. Major globalised processes of agricultural intensification, biodiversity conservation efforts, and natural-resource extraction have simultaneously manifested themselves in this one location.

These processes have roots in the colonial period and have intensified in the past decades, after the establishment of the cut-flower industry and the geothermal-energy industry. The chapters in this volume exemplify the multiple, intertwined socio-environmental crises that consequently have played out in Naivasha in the past and the present, and that continue to shape its future.
This series publishes monographs on African social issues. The studies from various social scientific perspectives, are original works, and essential for scholars of African Studies. Africa is getting an increasing amount of interest from the academic world: the continent is developing at a rapid pace. To understand the changes and to learn more about the social history of Africa, the new series will shed light on the problems and possibilities of the continent from Senegal to Somalia and from Niger to South Africa. Titles will be published with local publishers as much as possible.
