The individual experiences of those who, in some way, contributed to the development and demise of colonial Africa are often overlooked. These "agents" of empire--intellectuals and peasants, chiefs and ex-slaves, nationalists and colonial officials--symbolize the ambiguities of and limitation on colonial power. "Agency and Action" attempts to capture their legacies.
