Cameroon is a country endowed with a variety of climates and agricultural environments, numerous minerals, substantial forests, and a dynamic population. It is a country that should be a leader of Africa. Instead, we find a country almost paralyzed by corruption and poor management, a country with a low life expectancy and serious health problems, and a country from which the most talented and highly educated members of the population are emigrating in large numbers. Although Cameroon has made economic progress since independence, it has not been able to change the dependent nature of its economy. The economic situation combined with the dismal record of its political history, indicate that prospects for political stability, justice, and prosperity are dimmer than they have been for most of the country's independent existence. The fourth edition of the Historical Dictionary of the Republic of Cameroon has been updated to reflect advances in the study of Cameroon's history as well as to provide coverage of the years since the last edition. It relates the turbulent history of Cameroon through a chronology, an introductory essay, a bibliography, and over 600 cross-referenced dictionary entries on significant persons, events, places, organizations, and other aspects of Cameroon history from the earliest times to the present.

A message to commemorate the 2017 Int'l Youth Day.
On this day, as the international community celebrates the 2017 Int'l Youth Day, I call on all young people, from different sectarian background to
be united and share knowledge together as one people.
Keeping all their differences away and focus on their strength in making this world a better place.
Let us as youths and today's leaders, adopt the spirit of oneness and a heart of tolerance and volunteerism.
These will help us stay away from drugs, alcohol and all sort of uncivic behaviours.
We are leaders of today, and therefore have the responsibility to build our nations, begining from our local communities and neighbourhoods.
Let the United Nations, African Union and the European Union respect the rights of the youths and STOP calling us leaders of tomorrow, because our yesterday's tomorrow is TODAY.
Encourage the youths from today, get them involved in offices of decision making, employ them and make available finance to assist their dreams and rich talents than exploiting those from them.
This is the 21st century and let all nations on earth open doors of opportunities to young people and help them run away from terrorism.
We are a global citizens, the result of the Sustainable Development Goals are in our hands.
Together we shall build a better world.
President Fabian Ekukwe,
International Youth activist,
United Council for Youths Empowerment. #UCYE
