'This collection is a fine tribute to John Flint, the Dalhousie University historian, whose wide-ranging research on the history of colonialism in Africa has done much to challenge established thinking. The book shows how Flint's ways of understanding the colonial era have been influential in the work of his students and colleagues. Presenting the results of research on all parts of sub-Saharan Africa, Agency and Action reveals the complexities and ambiguities of the colonial era through the lives and careers of a diverse group of colonial agents and subjects. In different ways, each of these chapters follows the approach of Flint himself by showing how individual ambitions, beliefs and actions were both shaped by and makers of the colonial experience.' - Alan Jeeves, President, Canadian Association of African Studies
'...an important book...the essays are all of a quality to rival those in the top journal...' - Toyin Falola, African Studies Review
