Abstract

Housing matters, no matter when or where. This volume of collected essays on housing in colonial and postcolonial Africa seeks to elaborate the how and the why. It concentrates on analyzing housing in its multifacetedness, be it a lens to offer insights into complex processes that shape societies be it a tool of empire to exercise control over private relations of inhabitants or be it a means to create good, obedient and productive citizens.
