Abstract:

"This book traces the roots of the current turmoil and sheds light on overlooked factors impacting nation building in post-colonial Cameroon. It demonstrates the urgency of cross-disciplinary work on African societies and the continued relevance of postcolonial criticism as a theoretical framework. It extends the postcolonial critique inaugurated by Homi Bhabha's Nation and Narration into twenty-first-century sub-Saharan Africa. It also reframes the question of modernity and development in this context, suggesting an approach with bearing on people's lived experience. This study draws from a diversity of fields-political science, literature, history, cultural studies, and postcolonial studies-to demonstrate the limitations of a philosophy of nation building that turned into state consolidation. It is a timely study on Cameroon's currently volatile situation that is applicable to other postcolonial contexts, in Africa and elsewhere"--
