Reviews

In African politics, Kenya's Jomo Kenyatta, Tanzania's Julius Nyerere, and Ghana's Kwame Nkrumah were known for their early radical ideas, and in the case of Nkrumah and Nyerere, for their socialistic political stance. Kenyatta was well known for his suspected leadership in the Mau-Mau revolt against British colonial rule; Nyerere for his "Ujamaa," a cooperative/socialist enterprise; and Kwame Nkrumah as the indigenous African leader who, in 1957, lit the torch of modern African political independence. This book analyzes their nationalistic-cum-Pan-Africanist and overall political contributions to African history.

"Professor Assensoh writes with candor and insight, providing the reader with a superb introduction to three dominant and key political personalities responsible for the political map of Africa as it exists today." -- James A. Cox, The Midwest Book Review.

"The book is not just a comment on these leaders but also on imperialism and colonialism." -- Godwin R. Murunga, The Weekly Review
