Cameroon Political Story. Memories of an Authentic Eye Witness


Cameroon Political Story. Memories of an Authentic Eye Witness Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Cameroon Political Story is a long journey through the eyes and actions of the author himself. It is a mix between Mbile's memoirs, a bit of his biography and the Cameroon political story, heavily weighted in favour of that part of the Republic formerly identified as Southern Cameroons, later West Cameroon, now South West and North West Regions. The story is told in the interest of the Cameroonian youth and scholar who have often complained of the inadequate recording by political leaders of the life and deeds of their times. It is the story of an African boy of humble village beginnings who rose to participate in the making of a modern political community. It is hoped the book provides useful knowledge on the history, growth and constitutional evolution of Cameroon, a country which after more than a century of administrative metamorphosis settled to its present statehood in 1961, a Cameroon reborn.

Book News Annotation:

As a journalist, trade union activist, and parliamentarian, Mbile came to play a significant role in the independence and reunification politics of Cameroon from the 1950s to the early 1970s, as Cameroon emerged from the colonial era, before he was dropped from government in 1972. In this volume, he combines memories of his own life with the political history of those years in order to elucidate the political development of Cameroon in independence.
