Abstract:With regard to the political unrest which has plagued Cameroon between 1954 and 1961 several hypotheses have been forwarded. Intending to evaluate the relative validity of these alternative hypotheses this paper, in more general terms, constitutes a preliminary exploration of the potential influence exerted by all forms of unemployment on the political development of new African nations. Sections: Influence of forms of unemployment on political development; some theoretical considerations - Methodological considerations - The labour market of Douala; determinants of participation in the labour force - The influence of achievement - The influence of ascription - The homogeneity of jobless populations - Life styles of Jobless individuals - Summary and conclusions.
