Whether Losing, Whether Winning

Essays in Political Realism

by G.D. Nyamndi

An enthralling journey down memory lane and up the future's road, this study of history, politics and the future reaches into the heart of human ambition and its hold on the collective destiny of any people. The fate of minorities, the quality and ultimate purpose of elections, the place of truth in human relations: these are some of the core concerns of this unique narrative. Although handled against the background of recent political events in Cameroon, these concerns are actually more representative of the African and indeed the human condition globally than they are particular to any specific country or context.
