Chapter Summary

This front matter section of the book titled Uncovering the History of Africans in Asia contains the table of contents and the foreword by Tukumbi Lumumba-Kasongo. The questions related to, and/or about, the African Diaspora at large have been extensively studied mainly through two main interrelated historical perspectives, namely European-American transatlantic slavery and European colonialism. They are the dominant areas of interest, which are part of the imperialist paradigms. The paradigms, methodological and analytical perspectives developed in the book were examined and appreciated within the frameworks of the dynamics of the world political economy and the contemporary state and its cultures. The world of the states has defined the world using some precise tools such as physical territoriality, imagined and/or real sovereignty, and population defined as citizens.

Keywords:Africans; Asia; European colonialism; European-American transatlantic slavery; political economy
