This introductory chapter sets out the purpose of the book, which is to reconstruct the lives of the children mentioned in Louis Joseph Barot's account during the period of French rule in West Africa. It focuses on the offspring of temporary unions between French men and African women from the period of French expansion across West Africa in the late 19th century until the 1960 independence. It explains the French occupation of a small section of the population in West Africa.

Keywords:   West Africa, children, Louis Joseph Barot, temporary unions, mixed race
