Vita Books

Vita Books is an independent Kenyan publisher supporting people’s struggles to create societies based on the principles of equality and justice. It aims to redress working people’s lack of power over information, communication and the media which  then restricts their access to ideas and experiences to resist imperialism.  Vita Books strives to connect and unite progressive people everywhere in their battles for justice and equality for everyone.

This website also features books, presentations,  articles, creative works and material relating to anti-imperialist struggles mostly in Kenya, but will extend to Africa as a whole as resources permit.
