In this chapter, the general enterprise of the book is introduced along with the general reasons why the topics discussed are worth considering at all. I present the positions and theoretical elements on which the discussions of the following chapters are based. The most central concepts of the framework to be developed, as well as some terminology that is crucial for the subsequent analyses, are outlined. All in all, this chapter serves to prepare the reader for the more detailed discussions in the rest of the book.
