Omtale: Agency and Action in Colonial Africa
The coming of colonialism to Sub-saharan Africa generated many forces that historians often describe in abstract terms: peasantization, leadership, nationalism and even colonialism. Such terms often hide or overwhelm the individual experiences of those who, in some way, contributed to the development and demise of colonial Africa. These "agents" of empire - intellectuals and peasants, chiefs and ex-slaves, nationalists and colonial officials symbolize the ambiguities of and limitations on colonial power. "Agency and Action in Colonial Africa" attempts to capture their role.
