About this book

Inspired by Gandhi's non-violent campaign of civil disobedience to achieve political ends, Kwame Nkrumah led present-day Ghana to independence. This analysis of his political, social and economic thought centres on his own writings, and re-examines his life and thought by focusing on the political discourse and controversies surrounding him.

Reviews

"This book addresses a topic that has enduring relevance, especially in the context of the current discussion about the importance of leadership in helping to shape the destinies of countries both in Africa and elsewhere. Ama Biney has done a masterful work in analyzing an important issue, as reflected in the garnering of evidence, the demonstration of analytical rigor and balance, and thorough and comprehensive analysis." - George Kieh, Professor of Political Science, University of West Georgia

"This book is a tour de force. The writing is lively, compelling and enlightening. This work is easily among the best books I have ever read on Kwame Nkrumah." - Judson L. Jeffries, Professor, Department of African American and African Studies, The Ohio State University and author of Huey P. Newton: The Radical Theorist

"My satisfaction with this work lies in the quality of the research and the author s ability to engage in objective analysis of the political and social thoughts of such a political leader as Kwame Nkrumah of Ghana. This work by Ama Biney is a significant and positive contribution to the literature on the history of African political leadership." - David Owusu-Ansah, Professor of History, James Madison University
