The African presence

This chapter discusses the book’s definitions and scope. It defines campaign organisations, prevailing interactions between Africa and Britain, and the African presence in Britain. It goes on to argue that framing theory can help understand the ways campaign organisations have represented Africa. It finishes by suggesting that there is a campaign tradition in Britain based in the representation of Africa.
