Parmi les pays d'Afrique, le Cameroun est l'un de ceux qui attirent le plus d'anthropologues. Après la première guerre mondiale en effet, cet ancien protectorat allemand fut divisé entre Britanniques et Français, ce qui explique sans doute pourquoi de nombreux chercheurs de cultures anthropologiques différentes s'y sont intéressés. Foyer présumé de diffusion des langues bantoues, son extraordinaire diversité culturelle (environ 150 ethnies pour 15 millions d'habitants), comprenant aussi bien les pygmées de la forêt équatoriale que les sociétés hiérarchisées des Grassfields ou encore les Peul et montagnards du Sahel, en fait un pays particulièrement riche pour des études anthropologiques. Plusieurs livres récents en apportent la confirmation.
