No Turning Back
Poems of Freedom 1990-1993
No Turning Back relives the tumultuous beginnings of Africa's democratization experiment in the early 1990s. The main theme of the collection is an investment in hope and in the resilience of Africans. The poems are loud and clear in their castigation of dictatorship and its miseries. They celebrate the mass resolve and thirst for democracy by Africans for whom there is 'No turning back!'

'A lucid and truly memorable collection of poems. Dibussi forces us to turn back and look at the pivotal volcanic moments in Cameroon's history between 1990- 1993... As a student activist and budding journalist during this historic period, Dibussi captures cadences of this struggle eloquently.'Joyce Ashuntantang, Ph.D., Department of English, University of Connecticut, Greater Hartford, USA
'This collection is an important document chronicling, through verse, the events of an era in a given space with unmitigated passion.'Kangsen Wakai, poet, Houston, Texas, USA
'...a subtle yet unapologetic critique of Cameroon's chequered history of predatory governance. The poems provide succor to a people besieged first by the unrealised dreams of a political (mis)marriage and then a false promissory note on which their democratic development is written.'George Ngwane, Chair, National Book Development Council, Cameroon
