2009-10-06

The author was part of the “Alternative Management” third year program in HEC in 2008/2009

Le Rebelle III is a collection of Mongo Beti's essays gathered and presented by André Djiffack. This book is mainly a description of Cameroonian reality between 1995 and the death of Mongo Beti in 2001. The author underlines the consequences of French neocolonialism in Cameroon, especially in terms of education, civilization and individual liberty. Mongo Beti blames the Cameroonian government for its positions especially when it comes to human rights which are often violated. This book also raises the question of the role of western democracies and France in particular in the sustainable chaos faced by the Cameroonian population.
