An examination of the constitutional history of British Southern Cameroons from 1922 to 1961, this work provides a foundation for understanding the origin of the Anglophone Question in present-day Cameroon. A revised edition, it covers issues such as, amongst others: Foncha's confidential letter to Soppo Priso in 1956; the banning of the UPC in Southern Cameroons in 1957; the inconclusive nature of the 1959 general election; the December 1960 standoff between Foncha and Deputy Commissioner N.H. Milne; the plebiscite campaign strategies of the KNDP and the CPNC; and the revelation that Foncha and Muna had, allegedly, cut a deal with Ahidjo before the Foumban Constitutional Conference.;The author's work is the result of extensive research at the Public Records Office (London), the National Archives in Yaounde and Buea, and of interviews with many of the key Cameroonian players in the constitutional development of the territory.
