Lueong, G. (2016):THE FOREST PEOPLE WITHOUT A FOREST. Berghahn Books, Oxford. Development interventions often generate contradictions around questions of who benefits from development and which communities are targeted for intervention. This book examines how the Baka, who live in Eastern Cameroon, assert forms of belonging in order to participate in development interventions, and how community life is shaped and reshaped through these interventions.
