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!

The book draws on various sources, including interviews, academic seminars, reflections on Kwame Nkrumah by his contemporaries, family members, the youth in Ghana, Africanists, and selected original academic papers focusing on Kwame Nkrumah s life and times. It concludes that President Kwame Nkrumah s Pan-African vision in the 1950s and 1960s remains relevant today and for the future of Africa in the 21st century. Gordon s ability to chronicle Kwame Nkrumah s life, intellectual acumen, transformational and visionary leadership, approaches to social change, and an Africanization process marshalled by the reconfiguration of the African personality and policy, sets this book apart from other works about Kwame Nkrumah. This work on Nkrumah and his presidency is not an end unto itself, but a conceptual bridge for Africanists and African enthusiasts to travel to the future. –Seth N. Asumah, SUNY Distinguished Teaching Professor and Chair, Africana Studies Department, State University of New York at Cortland In Revisiting Kwame Nkrumah: Pathways for the Future Professor Gordon provides us with a unique window into Nkrumah the man and his ideals, from the perspective of both Nkrumah’s better known contemporaries, as well as many of those “ordinary” people whose lives were directly impacted by his visions for Ghana and Africa. –Akosua Adomako Ampofo, Professor and Former Director, Institute of African Studies, University of Ghana

You become a footballer because you love football. And then you are a footballer, and you’re suddenly in the strangest, most baffling world of all. A world where one team-mate comes to training in a bright red suit with matching top-hat, cane and glasses, without any actual glass in them, and another has so many sports cars they forget they have left a Porsche at the train station. Even when their surname is incorporated in the registration plate.
So walk with me into the dressing-room, to find out which players refuse to touch a football before a game, to discover why a load of millionaires never have any shower-gel, and to hear what Cristiano Ronaldo says when he looks at himself in the mirror.
We will go into post-match interviews, make fools of ourselves on social media and try to ensure that we never again pay £250 for a haircut that should have cost a tenner. We’ll be coached and cajoled by Harry Redknapp, upset Rafa Benitez and be soothed by the sound of an accordion played by Sven-Goran Eriksson’s assistant Tord Grip. There will be some very bad music and some very bad decisions.

This is a book that picks up where The Four Agreements left off. Building on the principles found in his father’s bestselling book, Ruiz, Jr. explores the ways in which we attach ourselves inappropriately to beliefs and the world.
Ruiz explores the five levels of attachment that cause suffering in our lives. The levels are:
Accessible and practical, Ruiz’s exploration invites us to look at our own lives and see how an unhealthy level of attachment can keep us trapped in a psychological and spiritual fog. He then invites us to reclaim our true freedom by cultivating awareness, detaching, and discovering our true selves.
In The Four Agreements, don Miguel Ruiz revealed how the process of our education, or domestication, can make us forget the wisdom we were born with. Throughout our lives, we make many agreements that go against ourselves and create needless suffering. The Four Agreements help us to break these self-limiting agreements and replace them with agreements that bring us personal freedom, happiness, and love.
In The Fifth Agreement, don Miguel Ruiz joins his son, don Jose Ruiz, to offer a fresh perspective on The Four Agreements, and a powerful new agreement for transforming our lives into our personal heaven. The Fifth Agreement takes us to a deeper level of awareness of the power of the Self, and returns us to the authenticity we were born with. In this compelling sequel to the book that has changed the lives of millions of people around the world, we are reminded of the greatest gift we can give ourselves: the freedom to be who we really are.
