Item description for Negotiating an Anglophone Identity: A Study of the Politics of Recognition and Representation in Cameroon (Afrika-Studiecentrum Series) by Piet Konings & Francis B. Nyamnjoh...

This study of the politics of the politics of belonging captures the widespread disaffection with the sterile rhetoric of nation-building that has characterized much of post-colonial African politics. Until the liberation struggles of the 1990s, dictatorship only paid lip service to democracy with impunity, often by silencing those perceived to threaten national unity. Since then, individuals and groups have reactivated claims to rights and entitlements and nowhere more so than in Cameroon. The book articulates the experiences and predicaments of the country's Anglophone community trapped in a marriage of inconvenience pregnant with tensions and conflicts.

Reviews - What do customers think about Negotiating an Anglophone Identity: A Study of the Politics of Recognition and Representation in Cameroon (Afrika-Studiecentrum Series)?

ONE SIDED  Jan 24, 2006
A good idea, how eager was I to find out there was actually a book about the "Anglophone Problem" even though I have read alot of what is here in Newspapers. The authors take upon themselves to state certain facts about the South West and completely leave out any analyses of the North West. Talking about their anaylses on what the North West-South West divide.Several other issues are treated lightly. This is a nice try but a book mostly one to be read from generations to generations needs to give us an unbaised analyses. We still need a book on what the real problem of one of the minorities in Cameroon is about.Someone give us a fair account.
