MEDIA REVIEWS
This updated edition in a solid series brings to libraries an important, complex, diverse country, often referred to as "Africa in miniature" since it has undergone many of the historical and contemporary changes and traumas seen across the continent through the years. Two of the authors prepared the third edition in 2000, and the new author is especially strong in women's issues. Following a helpful introduction, more than 600 alphabetically arranged entries cover significant persons, events, places, organizations, and cultural factors. The concise, balanced, and clear descriptions are accurate and current. Political leaders and conferences through the years, social activists, cultural elements (such as a particular cloth textile), corruption, artists, and a range of women's issues (especially violence) are brought forward. The work is enhanced by a list of acronyms and abbreviations, initial black-and-white line maps, a chronology (current through mid-2009), and an extensive, well-organized, and current bibliography (including Web sites) that is typical of the publisher's series. Much of the information is on the Internet (although often in French). This work will enable large public and academic libraries to provide a window into a lesser-known nation, one that has been buffeted by European and cultural forces throughout its history. * Booklist *
It is an accessible source for brief information on subjects with regard to the Republic of Cameroon and citations to go to for more information. * American Reference Books Annual, May-August 2010 *
