French Investment in Colonial Cameroon: The FIDES Era (1946-1957) analyzes French investments in Cameroon during the era of the program for the development of French colonies known as FIDES. It offers not only a description of the economic structures of colonial Cameroon, but also an analysis of French public and private investment in Cameroon, the Franco-Cameroonian economic and financial relationship, the contribution of Cameroon to the dynamics of French capitalism, and the role played by French capitalism in the economic development of Cameroon. It is particularly useful for its detailed financial evaluation and assessment of the various effects of FIDES investment in Cameroon and includes numerous tables and figures. French Investment in Colonial Cameroon: The FIDES Era (1946-1957) is based on a variety of sources collected in Cameroon, France, and the United States and will be useful for instructors teaching courses related to colonial, modern, or contemporary Africa, the economic history of Africa, and French colonial history, and to all interested in these subjects.
