    Abstract : The culture confrontation remains the central theme throughout this book, with special emphasis given to points of conflict.

By focusing my analysis on the dynamics of this confrontation, the point of contact between Congolese and Europeans, I have marked that the purpose of this study is not to present a characterization of Congolese or African culture as separate entities.
