Hi, I am looking for a word to describe the introductory chapter of a book. I want to explain how this chapter relates to the rest of the book, i.e. it basically talks about everything that is going to come up in more detail throughout the rest of the book. Sort of like "summarize", but there is a better word that I just can't think of right now. The introductory chapter previews the rest of the book. ? The introductory chapter is a preview into the rest of the book. ? The introductory chapter foreshadows the rest of the book. ? (I think this doesn't work - foreshadow is usually used for negative things to happen in the future, right?) The introductory chapter anticipates the rest of the book. ? Thanks.
