Chapter Summary

This front matter section of the book &t;Encounters in Quest of Christian Womanhood&t; contains table of contents, acknowledgements, list of figures, glossary and list of abbreviations. The book provides one of the as yet rare case studies for the early stages of this development: how African women on the pre- and early colonial Gold Coast (Ghana) encountered Basel Mission Christianity, 1843-1885. Popular interpretations have tended to describe Christianity as either empowering or domesticating African women.

Keywords: African; Basel Mission; Christian Womanhood
