• Born to Score: The Autobiography

    Dwight Yorke has been one of the most successful and prolific goalscorers in the Premier League’s history over the past decade. He was known first at Aston Villa and then Manchester United for his permanent smile, smoothness and flair – and for making headlines both on and off the pitch. He was a key member of Manchester United’s treble-winning 1999 season and formed a deadly strike parterships with Andy Cole. His subsequent clubs have been Blackburn Rovers, Birmingham City, Sydney FC and Sunderland.

    Yorke came to be seen as the epitome of a young, successful, rich lifestyle, and he makes no apology for doing what a lot of young, single men would have done with sporting prowess, adulation and money. But it was his relationship with Katie Price (Jordan) among others which propelled him onto the gossip pages. He’s the father of their son Harvey, and he talks for the first time about the hurt of being branded a bad dad who didn’t care.

    Having never spoken out before, Dwight, nearing retirement, wants to tell his side, and from the heart. It’s the story of a boy who followed his football dreams from Tobago’s white beaches to England’s lush stadia and who, having been given a miraculous second chance to live aged two, risked losing everything he held dear. This is his fascinating story.

    ONE FOR THE GIRLS

    There are some life stories you just cannot beat. Each time the names of such champions drop, one might as well perform a rite of acknowledgment…any. Their lives have graced hundreds of lives, and hundreds of lives continue to be redeemed through them. They have seen it all. Done it all. They love and they are loved. These individuals have given, and still have more in store.  According to the Canon of the Classics, these persons, even the gods envy.

    Rosina Aboagye Acheampong is one such mortal.  From the precocity of her childhood, her dance with life has been one amazing ball of faith … and chance, nay, destiny. These captivating pages reel out the adventures of a pathfinder, a mould breaker and a pacesetter. Yes, her name might be synonymous with Wesley Girls, but be it at the national or community level, to list what she has achieved is to embark on the impossible.

    Beautifully, however, Archie the Matriarch does not seem to see the power of her influence. She only wants to give thanks and praise.

     

    Not only does this book make interesting reading, it also gives deep insights into the author and her experiences as one of Ghana’s influential and foremost educationists. It is, undoubtedly, a must-read book! – John Agyekum Kufuor, former President of Ghana

    I am yet to hear of any group of students who passed through her hands…who do not remember her with utmost respect and affection. – Professor Ama Ata Aidoo

    As the Headmistress, she re-defined the role. Indeed, the personality she brought to the position is irreplaceable and iconic. – Ambassador Evelyn Anita Stokes

  • Ghana’s Foreign Policy in Comparison with that of Japan And Russia Since 1960: With Reflections on the Arab Spring Uprising Since 2010 and Contemporary Global Diplomacy

    The book gives an overview of the history of the Cold War and its effects on the International Community. It chronicles the history and build-up of the present-day Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Regional Integration of the Republic of Ghana since 1960 and the Foreign Policy of Government of Ghana since 1960, including Ghana’s First to Fourth Republics and the Military Juntas. It touches on Comparative Analysis of Foreign Policy of the Governments of Ghana, Japan and the Russian Federation since 1960. It also reflects on the Arab Spring Uprising in Tunisia, Egypt, Libya, Yemen, Syria and other Arab countries since December 2010 and stresses the need for the eradication of the Cold War mentality and polemics in contemporary global diplomacy and politics.

    The unexpected fire outbreak at the Head Office of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Regional Integration, in Accra, on October 21, 2009, leading to the loss of some of its documentation, computers and other equipment, hastened the completion of the book with a view to helping to restore some institutional memory for the Ministry.

  • Concise Text On The Law Of Contract in Ghana

    This book is strictly designed for undergraduates who have followed a course of lectures based on standard works on contract law. It is intended to supplement your course materials, lectures and textbooks; it is a guide to revision rather than a substitute for the amount of reading that you need to do in order to succeed. Contract law is a vast subject as evidenced by the volume of material contained in standard works on the subject. It follows that a revision work cannot cover all the depth and detail that the student needs to know, and it does not set out to do so. The aim is to provide a concise overall picture of the key areas for revision.

  • Medical Law in Ghana: A Primer

    Transcending the traditional compartments with which lawyers are familiar, medical law is concerned with issues arising from physician or doctor-patient relationship. Medical Law in Ghana – A Primer seeks to present an exposition of health care law and medical law in Ghana as embodied in both statutory and case law. It addresses the law dealing with doctor-patient relationship; confidentiality and access to medical records; medical education, professional regulation of doctors, nurses and pharmacists; assisted reproduction, euthanasia (assisted dying), clinical trials.

    After a general introduction, the book systematically describes law related to the medical profession, proceeding from training, licensing, and other aspects of access to the profession, through disciplinary and professional liability and medical ethics considerations and quality assurance, to such aspects of the physician (doctor)-patient relationship as rights and duties of physicians and patients, consent, privacy, and access to medical records. Also covered are specific issues such as organ transplants, human medical research, abortion, and euthanasia, as well as matters dealing with the physician in relation to other health care providers, health care insurance, and the health care system.

    This book is intended to serve as useful source of authoritative information and guide for lawyers, students, health care professionals and all those that have interest in the interface between law and medicine, medical law, bioethics and medical ethics. Succinct and practical, this book will prove to be of great value to professional organizations of physicians, nurses, hospitals, and relevant government agencies. Lawyers representing parties with interests in Ghana will welcome this very useful guide, and academics and researchers will appreciate its comparative value as a contribution to the study of medical law in the international context.

  • Law of Landlord and Tenant in Ghana

    The present work brings to completion my effort to state the complete law of property of Ghana. It was inspired by my earlier work on the customary land law of Ghana. The customary law remains the heart of the Ghanaian land law, but the story of the property law of Ghana is incomplete without a comprehensive account of the received law of property. The present work, therefore, brings to a full circle my efforts to state accurately and wholly the property law of Ghana. The field of Ghanaian property law is dominated by a combination of foreign and indigenous concepts. Arguably, the theoretical aspects of the property law of Ghana stand in need of resolution of the tensions between the two sources of law.

    The development of the English law of property was deeply marked by the early activities of the King’s Court and its administration of a centralised system of law as distinguished from an earlier system of localised customary law, varying from place to place. Modified by equity, its doctrines were developed from a centralised system of records. A course in property law ought to equip the student with the entire range of concepts in the field, closely analysed. Described elsewhere as a rubbish heap that has been accumulating for centuries and understood only by the professors, the English law of property does not lend itself to easy understanding. Imposing structure upon a subject comprising essentially English law of property and applying it to Ghanaian circumstances has not been easy. To help the student grasp the interlocking nature of the concepts, and to gain rounded and more profound insights about the various rights and liabilities attached to interests in land, a persistent effort is made to connect the material to Ghanaian cases and statutes.

  • An Outline of Islamic Customary Law In Ghana

    This is an altogether original work in a virgin field. About two decades ago, the Faculty of Law of the University of Ghana (the only in existence at the time in the country), introduced the study of Islamic law as an aspect or jurisprudence. The decision was informed by the reality of a significant Muslim segment of the Ghanaian population. It was a brave decision. The halls of academia had never resounded to Islamic law concepts; for up to that point Islamic law was treated as a Cinderella with no place in the legal curriculum, save for a few passing references in regard to marriage and succession laws. Almost single-handedly, I set about developing a corpus of Islamic customary law relevant to the needs of Ghanaian law students. This small volume is the result of efforts to put my thoughts in essay form and to make available to students and the wider public a book-length manual on the nature of Islamic customary law in Ghana. By obtaining and analysing data elicited from community leaders, ordinary Muslims and clerics and evaluating them in the light of settled principles of Sharia law, a distinctly Ghanaian brand of Muslim law emerges. At appropriate points, material derived from court verdicts is interwoven into the text. No attempt has been made here to deal with other systems of Ghanaian family law other than the Islamic.

    The author has attempted to present the Muslim laws of family, property and succession within a reasonable compass to aid appreciation of the personal laws of substantial numbers of Ghanaians; and in a form that will be clearly understood.

    Aside from Law 111 and the Marriage of Mohammedans Ordinance, Cap 129 (1951 Rev.), Islamic law has been subject to no comprehensive legislative reform. This is perhaps to be expected as the practised law of Muslims was frequently misunderstood, and hardly recognised and understood by administrators and legislators.

    The author’s purpose will have been achieved if this book helps to free Islamic law from misconceptions common in our society.

  • Ghana Law of Wills

    The succession law of Ghana has undergone enormous change since the enactment of the Wills Act, 1971. Relevant literature has hardly kept pace with changes in statutory and judge-made law. The need for a comprehensive statement of the pertinent law has made itself felt for quite a long time. In response, several eminent jurists have grappled with some of the major problems associated with succession. The present account seeks to provide a detailed assessment, analysis, evaluation and critique of the law of wills of Ghana.

    Basically founded upon analysis of the Wills Act, 1971 of Ghana and relevant English principles, the discussion here also traverses a wider field. The end result is an opus that interweaves essentially English concepts of the law of wills with equivalent Ghanaian developments. The topics for discussion are broadened to include indigenous forms of testation.

    The book is broken into appropriate divisions and subdivisions to facilitate fuller discussion of each topic, largely along conventional formats for the analysis of the law of wills. The underlying theme is concerned with the devolution of a person’s assets upon death. Both the substantive and procedural laws are considered in some detail and on the basis of consistent principles of law. Various types of wills and rules for the making and revocation of wills as well as laws dealing with privileged wills, incorporation of documents, revival and republication, legacies and the construction of wills are analysed extensively with a view to encapsulating the corpus of the law of wills.

  • MCQs on the Law of Tort: Test Your Knowledge of Tort Law

    As Professor Kwame Frimpong notes in his foreword, questions in this book are practical, based on decided cases, as well as hypothetical issues and situations. The book is relevant for all common law faculties of law offering Bachelor of Laws (LL.B) programmes, and other institutions offering the Law of Torts to their students. The book is intended to be a supplement to the standard existing textbooks used by lecturers, and is intended to be a tutorial aid, to be used by lecturers in tutorials, and students in testing their knowledge on the topics covered during lectures. In Ghana, the book also covers Law of Tort topics that are examinable for the entrance examination to the Professional Law programme at the Ghana Law School. It is my hope that the book will be an essential learning tool for students in Ghana and common law world.

  • E-Book: More Profitable Than Gold – Less Capital Needed

    The purpose of this book is to help the new generation of African entrepreneurs embrace the reality of achieving higher net profit margins through investing and participating in the business of farming where less capital is needed.

    This phenomenon will facilitate the creation of jobs and birth an agribusiness eco-system that would create wealth and hence improve the livelihoods of many in Africa.

    According to the African Development Bank (AfDB), food importation into Africa as at 2017, stood at $35 billion and it is estimated that this figure will hit a staggering figure of $110 billion by the year 2025, if we continue the current trend of importation without giving much attention to the business of farming.

    These statistics are alarming and justifies the call for African governments to take farming more seriously. Even though there are other businesses that are also more profitable than gold, this book focuses primarily on the Horticulture side of Agribusiness.

    This book will give any “wannabe farmer” the acute knowledge to be able to start and run a profitable farm with little capital.

  • No Road Signs, No Manuals: My Journey Through Life

    The book tells the life story of a typical rural lad who pulled himself up by his bootstraps from the deprivation and obscurity of rural life to the comparative luxury of an Ivory Tower and, subsequently, into the limelight of international diplomacy. It is an enthralling story which holds out hope for hundreds of today’s youth who find themselves in similar and seemingly hopeless circumstances. What’s more, it is readable and informative. Diplomats, Civil Servants and Academics alike, will find the book useful.

  • My Ghanaian Odyssey

    The author arrests your attention as he takes you through his life experiences and role in entrenching democratic governance in Ghana. The narration grips you to want to read and read until the end of the book; thereafter, the desire is to begin all over again. My Ghanaian Odyssey is not only an autobiography, but also a definitive narrative of the country’s political journey. An insightful book, it is a must read for all.
