Chapter Summary

This front matter section of the book Strength Beyond Structure: Social and Historical Trajectories of Agency in Africa contains the table of contents, a map of Africa, and a preface. By choosing agency as the focal point in a variety of case studies from Africa, the book places itself within the academic tradition that seeks to explore the relationship between agency and specific circumstances in the human experience. The book’s starting point in exploring the meaning of agency in Africa is to acknowledge the fact that the academic and the local interlocutor share in the production of structures and patterns as reflexive thought-constructs.
