Item description for Peace Without Power. Ghana's Foreign Policy 1957-1966 by Armah Kwesi & Kwesi Armah...
This book discusses the foreign policy of Ghana's first independent government and this momentous early period in the postcolonial history of Ghana, under the stewardship of Kwame Nkrumah. At this time, Nkrumah had a place on the world stage and Ghana was the driving force of Africa in global diplomacy. The book explores how Ghana was able to pursue an activist foreign policy with few resources and little strategic importance. The author elucidates several areas of foreign policy in which Ghana punched above its weight such as the formation of the OAU, the restructuring of the Commonwealth, disarmament and world peace and the imperative of China resuming its membership of the UN and seat on the Security Council.
