Abstract

This thesis attempts an evaluation of the concept of African socialism in Ghana under the leadership of 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 tradition and, therefore, not intrinsically related to Socialism elsewhere. This crude definition could bear further clarification as we examine its implications in economics, politics, and the social structure of Ghana.
