The book title translates as: "Europe and Africa: anatomy of an encounter" and deals with the historical relations between the continents, from slavery to contemporary relations, passing through colonialism and its distortions. The establishment of borders and nation-states is put under focus with the scope of connecting present realities with their antecedents, while the concept of "Eurafrica" is analyzed in order to underline the persistent idea that Europe and Africa have a common (though unequal) destiny.
