More than 4 weeks availability
The book investigates opposition to the Cameroonian social and legal order through prose and theatre that employs legal themes, settings, and language as well as actual legal decisions. The conclusion is that opposition though ironic appropriation of legal discourse is more promising in fostering social justice than direct resistance to the legal hierarchy.
Stephen L. Bishop is associate professor of French and Francophone literature at the University of New Mexico.
