In Search of Harmony

A History of Bali Nyonga

by Fondi Ndifontah Nyamndi

In Search of Harmony traces the migration of Bali Nyonga, its transformation from a raiding band into a settled community in the Bamenda Grassfields, its development from a dispirited splinter of the broken Chamba alliance into a structured kingdom with solid institutions and a powerful monarch, its fateful encounter with the Europeans, and its transition into competitive national politics. It explores the complex and often conflicting web of relationships with its neighbours that have continued to impact its development. Students of Cameroon history and politics will find this volume useful, informative and challenging.
