A botched attempt by German adventures to conquer Muslim towns on the East African coast in 1888 led to a political dilemma that led to the collapse of civil authority in Swahili Towns. Feasts and Riot explores events leading up to the crisis, examining the nature of class conflict and popular consciousness in precolonial Africa.
