Chapter Summary

The front matter section of this book Sources for the Mutual History of Ghana and the Netherlands contains table of contents, charts, maps, figures, abbreviations, acknowledgements and preface by the director of the National Archief. In 2001-2002, the Dutch and Ghanaian governments celebrated 300 years of diplomatic relations between the two countries, which started with the mission that West India Company official David van Nyendael undertook from the Dutch headquarters on the Gold Coast at Elmina to the court of the Asantehene Osei Tutu at Kumase. The symbolic celebration of 300 years of diplomatic relations was a tribute to Dutch-Ghanaian relations which first developed at the end of the sixteenth century and continue, in a multitude of forms and with different levels of intensity, to this day.
