Abstract:This volume contains 26 essays in honour of Verkijika G. Fanso, who retired as professor in history from the University of Yaoundé I, Cameroon, in 2011. They cover a range of issues related to the contested histories, politics and practices of boundaries and frontiers in Africa. In part I, the book explores indigenous and endogenous practices of boundary making in Africa, as well as colonial and contemporary traditions, practices and conflicts on and around frontiers. Special focus is on disputed colonial boundaries between Cameroon and its neighbours. Contributors: Willibroad Dze-Ngwa, E.S.D. Fomin, V.S.
