Ghana without Nkrumah

Cover of Africa Report magazine, 1966. The Ghana without Nkrumah issue

 

President-for-life Kwame Nkrumah posing with army officers before the military coup that deposed him in 1966.

 

The feature articles in this issue:

The Winter of Discontent by Irving Markovitz - an article long referenced in CIA world factbook reports in years to come - but actually an article that is very difficult to obtain for some reason.

The Men in Charge by Joe Kraus

 

My commentary is here: Africa, 1966
