The introduction situates the book in the broader historiography of French empire and missionary studies. It introduces the key French and African actors and power brokers in colonial Senegal and explains the structure of French colonial rule in the colony. It emphasizes the importance of local power dynamics on the ground, rather than metropolitan ideology or high level colonial policy in the establishment and governance of empire.
