Not yet rated | write a review
The Making of Modern Cameroon, Vol. 1 examines the history of present day Cameroon''s struggle to create, unite, and integrate their country. The story begins with the colonization of the country by Germany in 1884 and continues with the country''s experience under British and French rule from 1914 to 1961. The study emphasizes the fact that independent French Cameroon had a bargaining advantage over Anglophone Cameroon when reunification talks began. These inequalities or differences contributed to the disparate attempt by the two regions to create a truly united and integrated Cameroon. The book is divided into two parts. Part I focuses on the three colonial administrations which provided the foundations for the post-World War I and II political developments in Cameroon. Part II concentrates on Anglophone Cameroon and examines three major factors considered crucial prerequisites of nationalism.

Editorial Reviews

"Chiabi''s book should be valuable to Africanists concerned with the process of nation building and those interested in modern Cameroonian history. The detailed discussion of political developments in anglophone Cameroon should make it a useful reference work as well. It will be a worthwhile addition to university libraries'' African history collections"
