    Long Walk to Freedom: The Autobiography of Nelson Mandela

    Nelson Mandela is one of the great moral and political leaders of our time: an international hero whose lifelong dedication to the fight against racial oppression in South Africa won him the Nobel Peace Prize and the presidency of his country. Since his triumphant release in 1990 from more than a quarter-century of imprisonment, Mandela has been at the center of the most compelling and inspiring political drama in the world. As president of the African National Congress and head of South Africa’s antiapartheid movement, he was instrumental in moving the nation toward multiracial government and majority rule. He is revered everywhere as a vital force in the fight for human rights and racial equality.

    LONG WALK TO FREEDOM is his moving and exhilarating autobiography, destined to take its place among the finest memoirs of history’s greatest figures. Here for the first time, Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela tells the extraordinary story of his life–an epic of struggle, setback, renewed hope, and ultimate triumph.

    Martin Luther King, Jr., on Leadership: Inspiration and Wisdom for Challenging Times

    What does it mean to be a leader? How does an individual create an unstoppable organization, reshape a struggle, a competition, or even a society? Why do we listen to one man’s voice, and ignore another’s? In the history of leadership in America, no one has galvanized a time, place, and people more forcefully than Martin Luther King, Jr. This book is an insightful examination of the leadership style of Dr. King, and using examples from his vision, offers powerful lessons that can be applied to one’s life, business, or endeavor.

  • Mike Eghan: The Emperor’s Story – From the Centre of the World

    The 286-page memoir, titled Mike Eghan: The Emperor’s Story — From the Centre of the World, captures the life story of Ghanaian veteran broadcaster Mike Eghan.

    The book takes us down memory lane with him, as he recounts family moments, his call to destiny and his love for music. His memory of the arrival of Kwame Nkrumah to Ghana, going to London which would capture his time at BBC, his return to the country he loved with a passion and what triggered it, life as a businessman and entrepreneur, political life, thoughts of the people who mean so much to him, his hobbies and pastime among others.

    The book will make you laugh; reflect and leave and you with great nuggets of wisdom. It will engage, provoke and perhaps transform the lives of readers who walk down memory lane with him.

  • Neo-Colonialism: The Last Stage of Imperialism

    This is the book which, when first published in 1965, caused such an uproar in the US State Department that a sharp note of protest was sent to Kwame Nkrumah, and the $25million of American “aid” to Ghana was promptly cancelled. It exposes the working of international monopoly capitalism in Africa and shows how the stranglehold of foreign monopolies perpetuates the paradox of Africa: poverty in the midst of plenty.

  • Never Say Die! The Autobiography of a Ghanaian Statesman

    Nyaho Nyaho-Tamakloe has been many things. In this insightful text, Nyaho takes us on a journey through his life, from his childhood in pre-independence Accra, to the year 2013, following Ghana’s seminal encounter with the ballot box in December 2012. His candid and thought-provoking narrative reflects meaningfully on significant (but often forgotten) socio-political events in Ghana. We share in Nyaho’s sobering experiences in some of Ghana’s prisons and detention centres as an inmate. We share in his tumultuous experiences as a football administrator in Ghana. We are also exposed to some of the dynamics that have influenced contemporary politics in Ghana, including the 2012 parliamentary and presidential elections.

    Ogyakrom: The Missing Pages of June 4th (Fireman Series) – Hardback

    Kwesi Yankah is currently the Minister of State for Tertiary Education in Ghana. Until April 2017, he was Vice Chancellor of Central University, Ghana, and was previously Professor of Linguistics and Pro-Vice Chancellor at the University of Ghana. Yankah, an inimitable satirist, is a proud product of Winneba Secondary School, University of Ghana and Indiana University, USA, where he did his doctorate. Well known in literary and academic circles, Professor Yankah has been a Public Intellectual since the late 1970s when, at 27, he started an anonymous column in The Catholic Standard newspaper, under the pseudonym Abonsam Fireman. The credit for the column, in a suppressive political environment, was often mistakenly given to the two great luminaries PAV Ansah and Adu Boahen.

    Later in 1986, when Yankah returned from doctoral work at Indiana University, he introduced another weekly column, Woes of the Kwatriot, this time in The Mirror which he sustained for a period of ten years. In 1996, the Ghana Journalists Association honoured him for ‘the longest running column in the history of Ghanaian journalism.’ His writings, both literary and academic, have won for Yankah various awards including the WEB Du Bois Award (GAW), the Zora Hurston Award (GAW), the Ghana Book Development Award (GBDC) and the Gold Book Award given by the Ghana Academy of Arts and Sciences.

    The present volume represents landmarks within 22 months of Yankah’s weekly column in The Catholic Standard, from January 1979 to March 1980. It is inspired by topical issues in two military regimes (General F Akuffo’s SMC 2, Rawlings’ June 4th Revolution) and one civilian government (Hilla Limann’s PNP). This compilation altogether allows a veiled peep into the most turbulent period in Ghana’s political history, Rawlings’ June 4th Revolution, including preceding events and the aftermath of the Revolution. In the words of Dr Anthony Bonnah Koomson, Editor of The Catholic Standard at the time of Yankah’s celebrated column: “The book captures a momentous era in Ghana’s immediate political history, reminiscences of which the author has sough to recreate and preserve with phenomenal linguistic skill. It presents, through satire, an accurate heartbeat of a people under intense political paralysis.”

    This book makes compelling, even if hilarious, reading on Ghana’s enigmatic June 4th Revolution.
