A military coup in overthrows Nkrumah Author: Pushpinder Khaneka. This book examines how Kwame Nkrumah, Ghana's first post-colonial political leader legitimized his rule.

This book drew harsh protest from the US government and consequently withdrew its economic aid of $35m previously earmarked for : Septem , Nkroful, Gold Coast. In Nkrumah’s book, ‘Dark Days in Ghana’, Nkrumah revealed that the coup de’tat was the handiwork of the Central Intelligence Agency (C.I.A) of United States of America. The leaders of the coup that overthrew Nkrumah immediately opened the country’s borders and its prison gates to allow the return from exile or release from preventive.

        Nkrumah is the greatest Ghanaian; hate it or love it. He is the greatest African; loathe it or hail it. The Golden era of Ghana was under his stewardship. The honor he gave the Black Man was his hallmark. And he documented all his struggles in his books. He wrote about 16 books apart from the pamphlets that he delivered.
