Abstract:During 1946-49 the French struggled to get the genie of Cameroun nationalism (the Duala's 1945 manifesto) back into the bottle of the French Union. This was a struggle the Cameroun nationalists initially won; but during the course of these initial encounters the strategy was also forged for their eventual defeat a decade later.
