Chapter Summary

This front matter section of the bookAfrican Alternatives contains the table of contents. The book aims first and foremost to stimulate the exploration of African initiative and creativity and thus to serve as an introduction to the themes taken up by the second AEGIS European Conference on African Studies, held in Leiden on 11–14 July 2007. Exploring such initiative and creativity is not limited to an understanding of the coping strategies of Africans faced with deteriorating socio-economic and political circumstances. Rather, the aim is to go beyond immediate conditions and analyze those initiatives that offer alternatives to the prevailing paradigms.

Keywords: AEGIS European Conference; African creativity; Leiden
