  • Big Men, Small Boys and Politics in Ghana: Power, Ideology and the Burden of History, 1982-1994

    During the 1980s, Ghanaian politics went through remarkable transformations – from revolution, through adoption of a draconian economic reform programme, to the eventual return to democratic government in 1992. This study covers the entire sequence of events, situating them in the broader historical context and offering a sustained explanation of what occurred. Since the eighteenth century, a central theme dominating Ghanaian politics and society has been the relationship between wealth and virtue, and Dr Nugent offers a key explanation of the way in which this theme is still predominant today.

    Drawing on research which focuses on different sectors of the body politic – the labour movement, the peasantry, professional associations, the student movement, the churches and the military – this book provides a much-needed synthesis. Dr Nugent gives an in-depth analysis of the 1992 elections, including information based on personal fieldwork and interviews undertaken in the Volta Region. His analysis is situated within the wider context of Africanist historical and political research, while doing justice to the nuances and complexities of Ghanaian political life.

  • Bogus Informants…Nation Wreckers

    Bogus informants move round mongering to security persons, alarming information that has absolutely no merit. Our security persons, a good number of times, fall for this mischief and draw all sorts of faulty conclusions. These bogus informants sometimes make a living from such evil lies or simply use them to score cheap and very unfair points at their rivals or competitors.

    It is just like the days of the Young Pioneers when a spoilt child, who does not want to be disciplined, would simply go and whisper some outright lies against the parents and, voila, such an unfortunate parent gets trapped on the wrong side of Osagyefo.

    Truth be told, this act of deliberate misinformation is an act of terrorism not new to our socio-political setting. Kofi Bentum Quantson, a security intelligence expert who worked hard through the ranks to become Director of the Bureau of National Investigations (BNI), examines this threat to nation building in this popular book.

    Conversations With My Father – Hardcover

    Conversations With My Father is a biography of Mr Boahene Yeboah-Afari, Dr Kwame Nkrumah’s first Minister of Agriculture and the first Commissioner (Minister) of the Brong-Ahafo Region. The accomplishments of the late statesman stand out against the backdrop of the turbulent pioneering years of militant nationalism in Ghana leading to Independence on March 6, 1957, under the leadership of Dr Kwame Nkrumah and the Convention People’s Party.

    Its special appeal lies in the unique contribution it makes to the understanding of nationalist polities in those early years of political awakening in Ghana.

    Conversations With My Father is about one of the unsung heroes of Ghana’s national politics and should be a dependable source of information for scholars, historians and political leaders, not only of Brong-Ahafo, but of Ghana as a whole. ~ Professor Gilbert Keith Bluwey, Head, Department of Political Science and International Relations, Mount Crest University College, Accra

  • FaceOff With The International ‘MP’

    Face-Off With the International ‘MP’ is a compilation of short stories, drama, different purposed letters, and jest, all garnished with an unusual but perfect mix of satire, wit and logic. The book walks readers through the experiences of the only ‘Member of Parliament’ representing a virtual constituency. The book brings to life issues in politics, romance, educational and career experiences both home and abroad, and short memos – files that the International ‘MP’ deals with 24/7. The right dose of laughter, the fluidity of Nkrumah-Boateng’s unmatched imagery, the apt description of everything Ghanaian plus the solitary enjoyment of his entitlement as the only untenured MP combine to make this book a must-read.

    I introduce to you a reverently irreverent writer who pulls no punches, wears no kids’ gloves, bars no holds and suffers no fools gladly. There is not a topic that Rodney is shy to address, and frontally and bluntly too. Anan Anan Ankomah, Managing Partner, Bentsi-Enchill, Letsa & Ankomah

    Rodney glides you along on a momentum of choleric rhetoric and suddenly explodes your mind into an amusement park of satire, laced with intelligent and exciting lines of literary mischief. Jason Tutu, Research & Development Expert

    Nkrumah-Boateng uniquely mixes truth and poetic satire: his wit, crisp humour, eloquence and fluid writing style, and the heretical elegance with which he makes his points, made you want to kick something…Little wonder a major radio station mistook his satirical narrative as fact, and serialized it on radio! Kofi Bentil, Lawyer/Vice President, IMANI

    Rodney’s writing always leaves me wanting more. Dr. Victor Bampoe, Former Deputy Minister for Health

  • Fighting Corruption Is Dangerous: The Story Behind the Headlines

    A frontline account of how to fight corruption, from Nigeria’s former finance minister Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala.

    In Fighting Corruption Is Dangerous, Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala has written a primer for those working to root out corruption and disrupt vested interests. Drawing on her experience as Nigeria’s finance minister and that of her team, she describes dangers, pitfalls, and successes in fighting corruption. She provides practical lessons learned and tells how anti-corruption advocates need to equip themselves. Okonjo-Iweala details the numerous ways in which corruption can divert resources away from development, rewarding the unscrupulous and depriving poor people of services.

    Okonjo-Iweala discovered just how dangerous fighting corruption could be when her 83-year-old mother was kidnapped in 2012 by forces who objected to some of the government’s efforts at reforms led by Okonjo-Iweala—in particular a crackdown on fraudulent claims for oil subsidy payments, a huge drain on the country’s finances. The kidnappers’ first demand was that Okonjo-Iweala resign from her position on live television and leave the country. Okonjo-Iweala did not resign, her mother escaped, and the program of economic reforms continued.

    “Telling my story is risky,” Okonjo-Iweala writes. “But not telling it is also dangerous.”

    Her book ultimately leaves us with hope, showing that victories are possible in the fight against corruption.
