  • Kwame Nkrumah and Nkrumaism: The Essential Elements of the Ideology for All African People, Those at Home and Those Abroad Paperback

    This work, “Kwame Nkrumah and Nkrumaism: The Essential Elements of the Ideology for All African People, Those at Home and Those Abroad”, examines the ideology for African people. An ideology organizes a people, unifies them, and guides them toward collective action in the common pursuit of an objective. The only objective that ensures the complete and permanent liberation of all African people, those at home and those abroad, is Pan-Africanism: a unified, socialist Africa controlled by African people. Nkrumaism is the ideology, the blueprint, that will guide African people and their descendants toward that objective. Nkrumaism takes its name from Osagyefo Dr. Kwame Nkrumah, not because of any hero worship and not because he was the first to articulate a theory of liberation for African people, but because he “synthesized and advanced” the African liberation theory espoused by his Pan-African predecessors. Most importantly, he dedicated himself to ensure that this ideology was put into practice and thus became, unlike anyone before or since him, the foremost practitioner of the ideology for the African Revolution. Based on the history, culture and current reality of African people worldwide, Nkrumaism is “like a light on a dark night showing the way to follow.” This work explores seven essential elements of Nkrumaism: identity, enemy, objective, philosophy, ideology, strategy and tactics. With our understanding of these elements, African people will forge the necessary ideological unity among a majority of our people at home and abroad in order to guarantee the successful building of Pan-Africanism. A Union of African Socialist States (UASS) is not only possible; it’s on the horizon! Forward ever, Backward never!

  • Kwame Nkrumah: The Father of African Nationalism Paperback – 15 December 1998 by Professor David Birmingham (Author)

    The first African statesman to achieve world recognition was Kwame Nkrumah (1909-1972), who became president of the new Republic of Ghana in 1960. He campaigned ceaselessly for African solidarity and for the liberation of southern Africa from white settler rule. His greatest achievement was to win the right of black peoples in Africa to have a vote and to determine their own destiny.

    He 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.

    This revised edition of Birmingham’s fine and accessible biography chronicles the public accomplishments of this extraordinary leader, who faced some of the century’s most challenging political struggles over colonial transition. African nationalism, and pan-Africanism. It also relates some of the personal trials of a complex individual.

    As a student in America in the late 1930s, Nkrumah, shy, disorganized, but ambitious and persistent, earned four degrees in ten years. For political training he then went to England. Nkrumah found writing difficult throughout his lifetime, but once back in his African homeland, with its oral heritage, Nkrumah blossomed as a charming conversationalist, a speechmaker, and eventually a visionary and inspiring leader.

    Nkrumah’s crusades were controversial, however, and in the 1960s he gradually lost his heroic stature both among his own people and among his fellow leaders. He lived his last years in exile.

    This remarkable life story, which touches on many of the issues facing modern Africa, will open a window of understanding for the general leader as well as for graduate and undergraduate classes.

    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.

  • Prisoners of Geography: Ten Maps That Tell You Everything You Need To Know About Global Politics

    THE MILLION COPY INTERNATIONAL BESTSELLER

    Geography shapes not only our history, but where we’re headed…

    All leaders are constrained by geography. Their choices are limited by mountains, rivers, seas and concrete. Yes, to follow world events you need to understand people, ideas and movements – but if you don’t know geography, you’ll never have the full picture.

    If you’ve ever wondered why Putin is so obsessed with Crimea, why the USA was destined to become a global superpower, or why China’s power base continues to expand ever outwards, the answers are all here.

    In ten chapters and ten maps, Prisoners of Geography looks at the past, present and future to offer an essential insight into one of the major factors that determines world history.

    It’s time to put the ‘geo’ back into geopolitics.

  • Stephen Hawking The Theory of Everything by Stephen Hawking – Paperback

    Stephen Hawking is widely believed to be one of the world’s greatest minds: a brilliant theoretical physicist whose work helped to reconfigure models of the universe and to redefine what’s in it. Imagine sitting in a room listening to Hawking discuss these achievements and place them in historical context. It would be like hearing Christopher Columbus on the New World. Hawking presents a series of seven lectures-covering everything from big bang to black holes to string theory, that capture not only the brilliance of Hawking’s mind but his characteristic wit as well. Of his research on black holes, which absorbed him for more than a decade, he says, “It might seem a bit like looking for a black cat in a coal cellar”. Hawking begins with a history of ideas about the universe, from Aristotle’s determination that the Earth is round to Hubble’s discovery, over 2000 years later, that the universe is expanding. Using that as a launching pad, he explores the reaches of modern physics, including theories on the origin of the universe (example, the big bang), the nature of black holes and space-time.
