The book is an account of the role played by the Catholic Church in the Bamenda Ecclesiastical Province of Cameroon in igniting, promoting and influencing the course of the struggle by the minority Anglophones to restore the statehood of Southern Cameroons since reunification with the Republic of Cameroon in 1961. It examines the relationship between the Catholic Clergy and the Anglophone Pressure Groups that clamoured for either the return to the federal system of government instituted in 1961 and abolished in 1972 or the restoration of the Southern Cameroons/Ambazonia State.
