dc.description.abstract This dissertation attempts to analyze the concept of African Socialism particularly in Ghana under the leadership of the late Dr. Kwame Nkrumah. African Socialism is defined in various ways by contemporary African thinkers. What they all have in common is the tendency to emphasize the point that African Socialism is somehow distinctively African, rooted in African traditions, and therefore, not intrinsically related to socialism elsewhere. This crude definition will be clarified as the writer examines the various works of African Socialist leaders.Special attention will be paid to the political implications of African Socialism in Ghana during the leadership of Nkrumah. The discussion will include both his supporters and his opponents and the ultimate collapse of his regime. en_US
