♥ Book Title : The Political and Social Thought of Kwame Nkrumah
☯ Full Synopsis : "Kwame Nkrumah remains a towering figure in African history. Inspired by Mahatma Gandhi’s non-violent campaign of civil disobedience, he led what is now the nation of Ghana to independence in 1957. Nkrumah made Ghana a beacon of hope for not only Ghanaians but also people of African descent throughout the world. Perhaps no other African leader of the 1950s and 1960s personified the dreams, principles, and aspirations of this era. This thoroughgoing analysis of Nkrumah’s political, social, and economic thought centers on his own writings, and reexamines his life and thought by focusing on the political discourses and controversies surrounding him."Article| Ama Biney| Statement ..."

♥ Book Title : African Political Thought
☯ Full Synopsis : "For most of its history, the African continent has witnessed momentous political change, remarkable philosophical innovation, and the complex cross-fertilization of ideologies and belief systems. This definitive study surveys the concepts, values, and historical upheavals that have shaped African political systems from the ancient period to the postcolonial era and beyond. Beginning with the emergence of indigenous political institutions, it traces the most important developments in African history, including the Africanization of Islam, liberal democratic movements, socialism, Pan-Africanism, and Africanist-Populist resistance to the neoliberal world order. The result is an invaluable resource on a region too often ignored in the history of political thought."Article| Guy Martin| Statement ..."
♥ Book Title : Kwame Nkrumah's Liberation Thought
☯ Full Synopsis : "An attempt to recapture the liberation philosophy of Kwame Nkrumah, first prime minister of Ghana. Owusu seeks to define a theoretical basis on which a modern socio-political and ethical structure for Ghana can be built and offers a paradigm for developing a role of advocacy to the Ghanaian religious edifice. He also strives to recapitulate Ghana's self-dignity, self-realisation and self-subsistence by highlighting the essential assumptions, dimensions and specificities of African personhood."Article| Robert Yaw Owusu| Statement ..."
♥ Book Title : Disentangling Consciencism
☯ Full Synopsis : "Kwame Nkrumah is globally recognized as a foremost pan-Africanist strategist and statesman. He is less widely acknowledged as a philosopher, in spite of his considerable philosophical training, seminal contribution to African political theory, and incisive critique of the ethics of international relations. Consciencism has the distinctive status of being the only published book that Nkrumah consciously meant to be a work of his philosophy, yet it has failed to attract the focused attention of philosophers. The chapters in Disentangling Consciencism: Essays on Kwame Nkrumah’s Philosophy critically explore the metaphysical, ethical and political thought expressed in Consciencism. In doing so, they broaden our understanding of his philosophical ideas and their relevance for effective African contribution to thought in a contemporary world in which Africa increasingly totters on the margins of international affairs. In much of current moral and political thinking, there is a tendency to universalize liberal values and neglect non-Western philosophical perspectives. At the same time, global normative thinking is overwhelmingly applied in non-Western contexts. Writing from across three continents, the contributors to this volume establish greater intellectual connection among African, Asian and Western academics, and their chapters offer explicit perspectives on the value of Nkrumah’s philosophy, and on the conceptual basis of early post-colonial public policy options in Africa. A valuable appendix provides the text of speeches delivered at the 1964 launch of Consciencism. With insights into numerous dimensions of Nkrumah’s philosophy, this volume will be of particular interest to students and scholars of philosophy—especially of non-Western metaphysical, moral and political thought—and to anyone working in the history of African political theory."Article| Martin Odei Ajei| Statement ..."
♥ Book Title : Kwame Nkrumah
☯ Full Synopsis : "This book examines how Kwame Nkrumah, Ghana's first post-colonial political leader legitimized his rule. It argues that Nkrumah found in religion a way to weld ethnicnically diverse groups with primordial attachments together. Through his employment he was able to spearhead the building of a nation he named Ghana. Social, anthropological, as well as political theories from Max Weber, Clifford Geertz, Kofi Busia, Ali Mazrui, David Apter, and others are utilized to examine the Nkrumah phenomenon. Specifically, the book contributes to the extensive literature on Nkrumah by supplying an often neglected link: The role of religion in Nkrumah's life, thought and career. By so doing it emphasizes the role of religious ideas and religious action in Ghanaian politics."Article| Ebenezer Obiri Addo| Statement ..."

♥ Book Title : The Struggle for the Long-Term in Transnational Science and Politics
☯ Full Synopsis : "This book reconsiders the power of the idea of the future. Bringing together perspectives from cultural history, environmental history, political history and the history of science, it investigates how the future became a specific field of action in liberal democratic, state socialist and post-colonial regimes after the Second World War. It highlights the emergence of new forms of predictive scientific expertise in this period, and shows how such forms of expertise interacted with political systems of the Cold War world order, as the future became the prism for dealing with post-industrialisation, technoscientific progress, changing social values, Cold War tensions and an emerging Third World. A forgotten problem of cultural history, the future re-emerges in this volume as a fundamentally contested field in which forms of control and central forms of resistance met, as different actors set out to colonise and control and others to liberate. The individual studies of this book show how the West European, African, Romanian and Czechoslovak "long term" was constructed through forms of expertise, computer simulations and models, and they reveal how such constructions both opened up new realities but also imposed limits on possible futures."Article| Jenny Andersson| Statement ..."
♥ Book Title : Kwame Nkrumah and Félix Houphouët-Boigny
☯ Full Synopsis : "This book discusses the divergent approaches to the concepts of African independence and unity adopted by two great African leaders, namely, the former President of Ghana Kwame Nkrumah and the former president of the Ivory Coast Félix Houphouët-Boigny. It identifies the impact their differences have had on various facets of African socio-political life since independence. The book also explores why, in spite of its various human, agricultural and mineral resources, Africa is still ranked as the poorest continent in the world."Article| Dadoua Aboussou| Statement ..."
