Giblin); Colonial youth at the crossroads: fifteen Alliance (a high school) 'boys' (a class of 'notables' in Kenya, H. Charton-Bigot); Raw youth, school-leavers, and the emergence of structural unemployment in late colonial urban Tanganyika (A. Burton); Bad boys in the bush? Disciplining Murran in colonial Maasailand (Kenya, R. Waller); Youth, elders, and metaphors of political change in late colonial Buganda (C.
