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 is Vita Books’ intention to help redress the lack of power over communication and the media held by working people by giving access to ideas, issues, action and views that resist imperialism.  This website features books, presentations,  articles, creative works and material relating to anti-imperialist struggles mostly related to Kenya.

Vita Books strives to connect progressive people everywhere, and to unite them in a global battle for justice and equality that can lead to fair and just societies for everyone.
