Kwame Nkrumah (1909-1972) turned a dream of liberation into a political reality. He was the leader of Ghana who urged Africa to shed the colonial yoke and who inspired black people everywhere to seek their freedom.Suitable for undergraduate and graduate classes, David Birmingham's wonderfully concise biography addresses the issues pertaining to colonial transition, African nationalism, and pan-Africanism.In this new edition, Birmingham also examines Nkrumah's exile and provides insight into the image of Nkrumah that has emerged in the light of research recently published.

Great Book. I think Birmingham should have gone into the unfair practices of the World Bank & Western influences in Ghana (Volta Project). Consulter l'avis complet

Review: Kwame Nkrumah: The Father of African Nationalism

Avis d'utilisateur  - Greta Roussos - Goodreads

David Birmingham brings African history in to clear focus. His talent for making the complex politics of the 20th century very easy to understand must be based on his in depth knowledge of the subject. I want to read more, more, more by this talented man on the subject of Africa. Consulter l'avis complet
