The studies in this book present many different views onto the lives of the young around the continent. They contribute to a theoretical, ethnographic and historical understanding of issues concerning children, youth, agency, locality, globalization and identity from the past to the postcolony and beyond. As such they strive to achieve a better insight into what lives in the hearts and minds of African youngsters.

Alcinda Honwana is Program Director at the Social Science Research Council, New York ;

Filip De Boeck is Chair of the Department of Social and Cultural Anthropology at the Catholic University of Leuven and Director of the Africa Research Center.
